710 Degree Cup 2018
Legends Event Center
4240 West Camelback Road
Want to know which local dispensaries offer the best bud around? The organizers of the 710 Degree Cup got you covered. The annual festival, which will have its third edition in 2018, awards MMJ spots around the Valley that they've judged to be the best based on patient appreciation and dispensary accountability. Hence their self-described mission of “uncovering who in Arizona has the best and worst medicine.”
According to the event's website, organizers will present awards in multiple dispensary and patient categories at this year's event, which takes place on Sunday, July 15. (Note: Because of the recent decision by the Arizona Court of Appeals regarding concentrates, the event will focus strictly on weed.)
A number of MMJ exhibitors will be on hand for the event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition to lauding the best of Arizona's medical marijuana scene, they'll also have live music, giveaways, a joint-rolling contest, food and drinks, contests, games, free samples, and a VIP lounge.
Anyone with a valid MMJ card can attend. Admission is free but only if you register online beforehand. Visit the event's website for more information.
