StorySlam Oakland: Drugs 

StorySlam Oakland: Drugs

With recreational marijuana legalization potentially becoming a reality in California this year, drugs are what everyone wants to talk about. For the third edition of StorySlam Oakland’s annual drug-themed storytelling competition, the anecdotes will surely cover marijuana, while also going beyond into the realm of all things unconventionally addicting — from religion to candy. Storytellers will be encouraged to let their guards down and tell all about their best highs and worst trips. The event takes place at Sweet Bar Bakery (2355 Broadway, Oakland) on the last Thursday evening of every month, and this one falls on April 21. Much like a conventional open mic, people sign up on a list to perform, but the event also functions like a poetry slam with judges offering scores from 1-10 that eventually lead to a winner. Some stories are inspirational, others are devastating, and some of absurdly hilarious. And all are ten minutes or less.
