With the recent change in public policy, the purpose of this multi-case study is to better understand the implications of cannabis legalization for festivals, including how changes in legislation are affecting policy development and implementation related to cannabis use by attendees, volunteers, and staff. By exploring the approach taken by multiple festival organizations, the diverse issues that need to be considered by organizers are highlighted. While the cases are festivals, the considerations are relevant to diverse tourism attraction that must consider how legal changes affect their policies and operations.
