Cannabis has been finding its way into all kinds of social settings lately.
You can join a secret smoke sesh, feast at an infused dinner party, make like an old-school stoner at one of the many festivals, and buy buds along with your broccoli at some farmer's markets. You can even incorporate weed into your wedding.
If you're looking for ways to mingle marijuana with your everyday social life, there are plenty of interesting happenings this month for those of legal age (21+).
Reefer Madness the Musical
Previewing Thursday, Sept. 14th (tickets are just $15), this musical satire by Ray of Light Theatre employs Broadway-style numbers to poke fun at the famously dramatic 1936 propaganda film that touted marijuana as an evil drug. Prepare yourself for a black and green comedy and a whimsical look at the dated perspective on the botanical wonder. // Sept. 15 through Oct. 7 at Victoria Theatre, 2961 16th St. (Mission); tickets ($35-$40) available at eventbrite.com.
Eaze Movie Night
BYO high self for munchies (El Tonayense tacos) and White Russians (compliments of Harper & Rye) for an evening with The Dude. Hosted by cannabis delivery service Eaze, this free movie night includes a complimentary happy hour with music by Vin Sol and DJ Primo, take-home cannabis goodies, and a screening of The Big Lebowski. // 5-9pm, Thursday, Sept. 21 at Castro Theatre, 429 Castro St. (Castro); admission is free with RSVP at eazenight.splashthat.com.
Virtual Reality Elevated
Whether or not you partake, VR Elevated, put on by Los Angeles–based events producer Grassfed and the cannabis collective The Art of Edibles, promises to be a trip. You can try your hand at 3D painting, walk a virtual tightrope, and hunt zombies via the HTC Vive, all while loading up on cannabis-infused treats. Hit up the vape bar and sample flower from Flow Kana, edibles by Baceae, and more. Note that you must be a Grassfed member to attend, so expect to fill out a quick application when you purchase your ticket. // 8pm to midnight, Saturday, Sept. 23, SF Design District; tickets ($45-$95) are available at eventbrite.com.
Physically fit cannaisseurs are likely already familiar with Dee Dussault, a certified hatha yoga teacher who's been offering cannabis-enhanced classes in the Bay Area since 2009. At her Wednesday and Thursday evening sessions ($30) in San Francisco, the cannabis is complimentary (you can also BYO) and the vibe is genuinely welcoming for you to loosen up and amplify your experience. Want to take it next level? Join Dussault for a four-day camping and yoga retreat, all meals and cannabis included, in the Yosemite Foothills (Sept. 28 through Oct. 1). // For information and tickets to weekly classes in SF, go to eventbrite.com; for more information on the Yosemite retreat, go to deedussault.com.
