A Marijuana 'Oasis' Is Coming to Coachella

Back in November, the recreational use of marijuana was legalized in California. However, Coachella, despite being located in Indio, California, does not permit drugs or drugs paraphernalia inside the venue.

While the rules certainly won’t (and certainly haven’t) stop a significant portion of attendees from bringing in a joint or two, as it goes with most other festivals, Weedmaps, the world’s first marijuana technology and media brand, has reportedly prepared a solution for the more cautious festival guests who still want to get a little high.

As TMZ reports, Weedmaps will be setting up a marijuana “oasis” just outside of the festival’s entrance in the desert. “Weedmaps and Talent Resources are building a compound 6 miles from the music fest to offer VIP guests a spot to chill with Cali’s finest bud. Our ganja sources tell us the spot will feature two grow houses, a greenhouse, and five geodesic domes to test different strains from GenX, Brass Knuckle and West Coast Cure,” TMZ writes.

You can check out a mock-up of the domes over at TMZ. Each dome will supposedly offer a different THC experience, including vaping, edibles, and traditional smoking.

Launched in 2008, and previously labeled as the “Yelp of marijuana dispensaries” by TechCrunch, Weedmaps’ website offers a community where marijuana users connect with other users in their geographic region to freely discuss and review local cannabis co-operatives, storefronts, medical doctors, and delivery services.

While those attending Coachella may have felt burned about losing Beyoncé, a marijuana “oasis” just might be the ultimate burn to make up for it.
