Thousands of medical cannabis cardholders descended on the Lost Lakes Entertainment Complex for the High Times Cannabis Cup on Saturday, leaving more than a mile of cars parked along either side of NE 10 Street.

But by the time the rock band 311 took the stage to perform in the evening Saturday, at least a thousand others were still in line awaiting their wristbands that would let them pass through the event gates.

“We waited in line for a good minute. They opened up the general admission doors a little early, so that was nice of them,” said Megan Carter, a patient from Lawton who managed to snag a patch of grass near the stage with her friends, Connor MacDonald and Craig Cunningham. “We expected it to be busy.”
