However, as one festival-goer pointed out, bans on cannabis didn’t keep people from using it at previous Folk Fests—there’s no reason legalization would make people more likely to adhere to a new ban.
To no one’s shock, many at the Folk Fest continued to smoke grass in spite of the law. One attendee noted the difference was that, unlike previous years, they were no longer trying to hide it.
