Hey ladies, pat-down searchesSubmitted by MMJ Ministry on Wed, 10/15/2008 - 11:53

DEL MAR – In response to complaints about marijuana use at summer concerts, the Del Mar Fairgrounds has banned cigarette smoking at the annual county fair and approved a policy allowing pat-down searches at reggae concerts.
The new rules will not apply to the dozens of other concerts and events – including the summer horse races – held at the fairgrounds and racetrack throughout the year.
The fairgrounds' board of directors has been under pressure from anti-smoking activists since August, when people complained about blatant marijuana smoking during a Ziggy Marley reggae concert at the racetrack grandstands.
