Outside Lands files for permit to allow marijuana use, sales

The organizers of San Francisco's Outside Lands music festival have filed for a permit to allow marijuana sales and consumption at the three-day event. 

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that an application was submitted to the state's cannabis office, as well as the city's cannabis office which has proposed new regulations on issuing marijuana permits for events. 

If the application is approved, Outside Lands would become the first festival in San Francisco where people can legally smoke and sell marijuana. 

The event runs from Aug. 9-11 at Golden Gate Park.
