For some in California, it also meant the first chance to purchase cannabis legally through a licensed retail dispensary. However, because many cities haven’t gotten their local regulations put in place, there are very few places with their doors open to recreational consumers.

The 2017 HomeGrown Cup: A Harvest Festival For The Modern Age

In a location hidden in a forest in the Dutch region of Brabant, something rather wonderful happened. It was the third edition of the HomeGrown Cup – an annual event that draws homegrowers together to celebrate their harvest.

Multiple categories were covered including outdoor, indoor, hash and concentrates. The principle of the cup is beautiful in its simplicity. Enter a category and you get to be a judge of that...
