     The Moapa Band of Paiute Indians of the Moapa River Indian Reservation are a federally recognized tribe of Paiute, who live in Southern Nevada on the Moapa River Indian Reservation. In the past they went by the name Moapat[1] and the Nuwuvi.[2] 

    On March 4th, 2017 at 5:45 am Cannabis Talk 101 attempted to capture the Moapa Paiute Chief offering up a prayer to bless and protect their land. When we arrived we were told by local security staff that the blessing was a very private affair and that the Chief would like his prayer to stay private. We gave the Chief our respect and stood in agreement that we also would be a blessing while we were there and not a disruption to the Moapa people. If you were there for the event I am certain you would agree.  For whatever reason it was the windiest, dustiest Cannabis Cup we had ever attended. Thankfully we were prepared to be in the middle of the desert for the event. However, we were not prepared for 40+ mile an hour winds and trying to cover up avoiding sand in our eyes.  Once we just accepted that the weather was going to be crazy, we made provisions to make the Cannabis Cup as fun and successful as possible. We truly ended up having a fantastic time, and made many new friends and colleagues. We send out our appreciation for the effort given by all to make this a memorable and prosperous event! See you all next time. Here are some highlights. Enjoy!!

MUSICAL PERFORMANCES!
Ludacris, as well as Chief Keef and B-Real, performed on Saturday, March 4th!

Unfortunately due to high wind advisories from the National Weather Service, we will not be able to open Day 2 of the 2017 HIGH TIMES U.S. Cannabis Cup Las Vegas presented with Ultra Health. A high wind warning went into effect this morning and will remain in effect until 10 p.m. PST with winds reaching 40 mph, including wind gusts over and above 60 mph. Obviously, the safety of our patrons is of the utmost importance to HIGH TIMES, and we cannot put anyone in the middle of these dangerous weather conditions. After an exciting first day of celebrating cannabis in Nevada, we are deeply saddened that Day 2 cannot go on; however, attendees are encouraged to exchange tickets for passes to our SoCal Cannabis Cup in April. Please email cannabiscuphelp@hightimes.com for any help, questions or concerns.
