Indio Police Gear Up for Phish Drug Arrests

It appears that the Indio, CA police have been reading the reports from the Phish shows this summer and they’re deciding to get out ahead of the news cycle inevitably showing drug arrests following the festival. They’re warning people about smoking pot…in California, where’s it’s basically legal anyway, so I have to believe that the police force down there will be more busy with the nitrous mafia and not the fans bringing their own stashes of medical marijuana.

Check out this article anyway, featuring quotes from our friend and frequent commenter Sammy. You can be forewarned or you can just go about your business like normal.

Indio police are encouraging attendees at this weekend’s Phish Festival 8 to refrain from smoking marijuana to have a good time.

Police aren’t disclosing their methods but said they will be on the lookout for anyone caught doing drugs during the three-day event at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.

    just like the previous concerts, there is a curfew that Phish will have to abide by unless they want the promoter to incur a $1,000 a minute fee.
    On Friday and Saturday the curfew is 12:30 a.m. — 30 minutes later than for Coachella Fest — and 11 p.m. on Sunday.
    “We have an official. He pulls out his Timex; it’s synchronized,” Guitron said.

    • And this will stop Phish?
      This is the band that picked up the tab to clean the state if Vermont without blinking.
      They try to make people happy. If the curfew money goes to a charity, or is used to benefit the community, expect them to smash that curfew to bits.
      I’m just saying…
