Coachella has officially banned pot on its festival grounds this year, although marijuana has been legalized in the state of California beginning this year. As of the first day of the new year, anyone over the age of 21 in California is legally allowed to smoke weed on private properties, as well as at licensed businesses. The decision marks a move to maintain the festival grounds marijuana-free for the foreseeable future.

The festival’s Q&A section reads, “Sorry bro. Marijuana and marijuana products aren’t allowed inside [the festival]. Even in 2018 and beyond. If that changes, we’ll update this answer.”

Coachella will take place starting the weekend of April 13, and next weekend of April 20. Headliners include Beyonce, Eminem, The Weeknd, and so so many more.  General Admission tickets for the festival have already sold out.
