Pat-downs OKd for reggae shows

October 16, 2008|From the Associated Press

The board of the Del Mar Fairgrounds has approved pat-down searches at reggae concerts after complaints about marijuana and tobacco use during a Ziggy Marley show earlier this year at the San Diego County Fair.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Wednesday that the fairgrounds' board of directors voted to approve the searches only at reggae concerts. It also approved a ban on smoking at the fair.

The 22nd District Agricultural Assn., which governs the state-owned fairgrounds, also approved restricting reggae shows to adults 21 and older and requiring reggae artists to sign a contract prohibiting the promotion of drugs while at the fairgrounds.
