The end of prohibition in California has almost arrived! We are so incredibly excited to celebrate this momentous day in history with our entire BPG Family.
Here are some pro tips for you to make the most of your experience:
Before January 1
1. Sign up to become a member of the BPG Family
Although not required, you are highly encouraged to become a member of the BPG Family!
Members receive special discounts, promotions and rewards throughout the year. Membership also allows you to receive common discounts – such as 10% off for seniors and veterans – without presenting ID.
Easily join online by visiting our website: myBPG.com/join-us. Sign up is free and you can opt out at any time.
2. Place your order online for Express Pick Up
Our Express Pick Up service is exclusive to our members. Shop our entire menu of high quality cannabis products online at myBPG.com/shop.
3. Read our breakdown of the new laws
Cannabis taxes, purchase limits, exit bags and other changes will take place on January 1. Read our blog post to learn what you can expect to see in 2018.
PS. Don’t forget to check out our new Grasshopper vending machine!
January 1, 2018 is going to be an historic event. BPG has been fighting for cannabis legalization in California for almost 20 years! We’ve planned an epic celebration to honor this moment.
RSVP on Facebook and share with your loved ones. You’ll want to be at the nation’s longest-running dispensary this New Year’s Day!
On January 1
1. Bring your valid government-issued ID
On January 1, adults over 21 will no longer need a medical cannabis recommendation to purchase cannabis from BPG. You will need a valid ID to attend this event and to make a purchase in our store.
Accepted forms of identification include a driver’s license or a passport.
2. Come early!
Festivities begin at 6am and last until 10pm.
Please join us for our ribbon-cutting ceremony and meet Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin and other prominent members of our community.
3. Document the day with a photo
4. Sample delicious foods, meet our vendors, enjoy some tunes
- Dosist (formerly hmbldt): 9am-12pm
- Dr. Kerklaan: 12-3pm
- Zapt: 3-6pm
- NUG and others will also be onsite throughout the day
5. Hop in the express line to pick up your order
The advantage of ordering ahead means you’ll get in and out quickly. Place your order for express pick up on January 1 beginning December 30. Just make sure to list the pick up date as 1/1/18 and confirm the order in your email.
Please note, the taxes you see in your shopping cart do not reflect the new taxes effective January 1. Read more about those changes here.
