    Wow, thats a really good question. I would think that they would have to, otherwise they would be violating the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) since the marijuana is prescribed to you by a doctor...Definetly bring all your papers though

    Allow me to answer this for you.

    It's not really clear.

    Day 1 in 2005, my friend shows his medical marijuana and permit to one of the security guards at the front of the line, who looks it over really quick and lets him in with no hassle.

    Day 2 in 2005, my friend shows his medical marijuana and permit to one of the security guards at the front of the line (a different one this time), who takes my friend, his medication, and his permit to the nearest police officer and asks the police officer what he should do. The police officer said absolutely NO marijuana, medical or not, was allowed into the festival.

    GV's official stance is that they are ok with it (they might want you to check your medication in at the medical tent upon arrival)... however, an uninformed security guard may direct you to the cops, who, depending on their mood, may or may not let you in.

    Your best bet is to hide your medication, and if they find it, then whip out your permit and hope for the best.

    PF, am I right?

    These security guards aren't looking for weed. They are looking for alcohol. They don't want people smuggling in alcohol because then they would lose a shit load of money. They don't give a rats ass about weed. Just be smart and roll a couple of joints and keep them in a pack of smokes.

    ^^ Thats not entirely true. Yes they are mainly looking for alcohol as well as weapons, but many a security guard smokes weed. I'm sure they won't think twice about taking your stash if they do indeed smoke the weed. Just stash it really good though. I mean who has ever had trouble getting weed into an outdoor festival.

    Any updates on this topic? Past experiences with medical cards at festivals?

    Now that I have a card. I am wondering how I should treat it at Phish festival, future Coachellas, and other California based events.

    Where is the closest dispensary to Indio?

    Normal answers apply:

    1. Dont be stupid.
    2. Dont flaunt it just cause you have a card. You can still be punished and you can still be hassled by security/cops.
    3. Act like you don't have a card and if any trouble happens is when you should use your "card" card.

    You cannot smoke medical marijuana in public spaces. So no it's not ok.

    But really, it's just weed. If you can't get some weed into coachella without getting caught, I don't know what to say to you.

    it's better to ask for forgiveness than ask for permission.

    I saw a guy arrive at the campgrounds on the first day with a fat tube of his green, sticky medication. He wasn't very smart though because he didn't have his papers/documents on him so the guard threw the whole damn thing away (heartbreaking). All he would do is go "MAN, THAT'S MY FUCKING MEDICINE, I NEED THAT SHIT."

    But, after he got through with his girlfriend, he walked to the trash can to grab it out. He wasn't very sneaky so the guard saw him, called the cops and he was escorted out of the camp grounds and had his pass taken away. His girlfriend was allowed to stay but he had to sleep in his car or find a hotel. He was completely bummed/humiliated.

    don't be a dumbass about it.

    Actually, since the ADA is federal law, they wouldn't be violating it. Federal law doesn't recognize medical marijuana; CA state law does.

    Does anyone else think all the questions about drugs are kind of weird? Like, at least 50% of people at Coachella use some kind of illegal drug, and maybe 1% ever have a problem. Just handle your shit.
