Sacramento, CA, Feb. 10, 2015 – City, County and State Officials have given the “thumbs up” to allow medical marijuana at the upcoming Fyah on the Water Music Festival April 18-19, 2015 at Camp Pollock in Sacramento.With the ever-growing national debate about medical cannabis, the owners of Fyah on the Water Music Festival took a historic stand on the side of medical cannabis andthe State Capital agrees.“Many medicinal cannabis patients, like everyone else, love to go to music festivals. Unfortunately, many of those patients have had to forego their medicine or “sneak” their medicine and risk using it in front of children, offending people who don’t want to be around medical marijuana or risk getting kicked out of festivals,” shared Scott Durst, Fyah on the Water co-owner. “Up until now, no music festival in Sacramento, as well as many other cities, have had a designated area for medicinal cannabis patients. We’re very thankful to have the support from eeveryone in the government agencies who worked with us to help make this possible.”
At Fyah on the Water, there will be a designated “Prop 215 Medical Marijuana Area.” (Prop. 215 refers to the voter referendum that passed in 1996 allowing medicinal cannabis in California.) Medical Marijuana Patients will have a safe and legal place to use their medication.
Fyah on the Water is being produced by the hugely successful annual Reggae in the Hills Festival, which takes place annually in June in Calaveras County. They are bringing in national and regional acts such as Tribal Seeds, Kottonmouth Kings, Marlon Asher, Pot Luck, Ditch, Rappin 4Tay, Arden Park Roots, ZuhG, and many more. Fyah on the Water promises a beautiful setting, big trees, green grass, state of the art sound, lighting, visuals and stage design.
The all-‐ages event located in Camp Pollock alongside the American River will include bonfires, live art installations, handmade jewelry and goods, Caribbean-‐style foods, sideshows, a beer garden, tribal drum circles and, of course, the Prop. 215 Medical Marijuana Area.
Reggae in the Hills was co-‐founded by Scott Durst and Jay Smith; both are industry leaders in event production. Reggae in the Hills adheres to a strict “Because we love you” attitude at all of their events. What makes a Reggae in the Hills event special is everyone is always treated like family.
