MA: Marijuana Enthusiasts To Roll 100-Foot Joint In Worcester Inaugural 'Harvest Cup'

Marijuana enthusiasts are celebrating a year of legal Massachusetts pot this weekend in Worcester, with plans that involve rolling a 100-foot joint.

It's part of the inaugural "Harvest Cup" is happening at the DCU Center on Saturday and Sunday, which is both a competition of sorts, seeking out the best marijuana products, as well as a trade show where vendors will display their wares.

"It's an opportunity for locals to showcase their skills and we're also hoping it's an opportunity for the general public to come out and look at that world to see that it's not a scary place, as they might think," Peter Bernard, president of the Massachusetts Grower Advocacy Council, told the State House News Service.

Massachusetts voters approved in November 2016 a law legalizing adult usage of recreational marijuana. The law's provisions on possession, use and home-growing by adults over the age of 21 went into effect more than a month later, on Dec. 15.

The "Harvest Cup" will host the massive joint-rolling, put together by the lifestyle brand Beantown Greentown, at 4:20 p.m.

The organizers say on their website they plan to include 1,000 grams of "our own personal trimmings."

The "Harvest Cup" comes as the new Cannabis Control Commission is in the middle of setting up the regulatory structure for retail marijuana shops in Massachusetts. The first shops are expected to open July 2018.

Under the Massachusetts marijuana law, adults over the age of 21 can possess up to 10 ounces of marijuana inside their residence and up to one ounce outside, though marijuana smoking is still prohibited in the same places as tobacco smoking.

Massachusetts also legalized marijuana for medical use in 2012. The Cannabis Control Commission plans to eventually take on oversight of medical marijuana from the state Department of Public Health.
