DETROIT (WXYZ) — It's been more than eight months since marijuana became legal in Michigan, and a huge marijuana-themed event is headed to Detroit this weekend.

The High Times Cannabis Cup will take place on Saturday and Sunday at the Russell Industrial Center. It's sponsored by High Times magazine, the first month publication that advocated for marijuana legalization back in 1974.

This is the second time in three months it has come to Michigan. The two-day marijuana festival was held in June at Auto City Speedway just north of Flint in Clio.

Performers for the show include 2 Chainz, Wu-Tang-Clan, Warren G, Detroit's own Trick Trick and more.

If you want to attend the event, you must be 18-20 years old with a valid ID and medical card, but you don't need a medical card if you are 21 and up.

Tickets for the show start at $40 for one-day general admission and $90 for 2-day general admission.
