Every year High Times magazine hosts the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. Essentially, people enter cannabis in a competion where it is judged on various criteria and the Judges choose the best bud for that year. I'm doing some research for an idea I've been noodling on and I'm wondering: a) Let's say you harvested your own super-breed of pot...How would you go about entering it in the competition? The official website is understandably vague about how one would go about transporting illegal substances internationally. And b) what happens if you win? I know that they sell the seeds from past years winners in seed shoppes all over Amsterdam...But would there be any financial rewards to winning? I was thinking that you could possibly sell your breed of pot to the pharmaceutical/medical marijuana companies... Ok, all my creative friends... Give me what you got!
Also, I'm noodling on a short story/film about a group of these Cannabis Cup judges. Doesn't that just feel like it's a Cheech & Chong / Dude, Where's My Car story waiting to happen! For anyone who is interested in becoming an official judge, it's ridiculously easy. You basically have to buy a $200 all access badge and fly yourself to Amsterdam.
