Officials behind the High Times U.S. Cannabis Cup have announced that the event is pulling out of Colorado this year in favor of somewhere more on-board with the cannabis extravaganza.

Organizers announced earlier this year that the Denver Mart — the location of the 2014 and 2015 U.S. Cannabis Cups — had denied their request for a 2016 permit. Next, event officials worked to secure permits for a site in Pueblo, Colorado, but this week announced they were backpedaling that plan after running into more regulatory obstacles.

High Times said it respected “the need for all parties involved to have confidence in all operational aspects of the event,” and for that reason organizers have decided to move the event to California.

“Given where we are timewise, we don’t feel confident we can pull together the event with the quality we need,” High Times CEO Larry Linietsky told The Denver Post. However, Colorado hasn’t been crossed off the list for future High Times events — “I’m hopeful we can do the U.S. Cannabis Cup in Colorado, for sure,” Linietsky confirmed.

The Cup’s new location will be the National Orange Show Events Center in San Bernardino, California, where High Times recently hosted the SoCal Medical Cannabis Cup.

The U.S. Cannabis Cup was born shortly after Colorado voters approved legalization, and over its two years of running has grown rapidly into the largest Cannabis Cup event in the world. Ganjapreneur was in attendance last year — check out our recap of the event for more information.
