Hempfest 2015: This Protestival Just Keeps Getting Better

Last weekend I attended the 24th annual Hempfest in Seattle on the waterfront of Myrtle Edwards Park. This was my third time attending the Protestival and I thoroughly enjoyed all three days there. While in the past years I have been a volunteer and attendee, this year I was there representing MJ Headline News and MJBA to capture as much of the experience as possible.

On Friday, true to Seattle weather, there was thunder and lightning and torrential downpours shortly after the park opened to attendees. I was soaked to the bone walking to the far end of the park with my boss, David Rheins, who was scheduled to speak. When we got there the speakers were all huddled under the backstage tents of the McWilliams/Black Memorial stage and there wasn’t an audience. The stage manager was still giving the mic to the speakers who were there to have their voice heard. It was there that I met Roger Tilton, Senate State Candidate from New Hampshire:

Saturday and Sunday brought much nicer weather and crowds of marijuana enthusiasts. When not hanging out at the MJBA booth, I was walking from one end of the park to another, checking out vendors, visiting with speakers and guests backstage, and making videos for Marijuana Channel One.

This Hempfest was much different than the last two in that I was able to fulfill a goal of being able to capture and share with the world this unique event in the cannabis industry and culture.

I want to give a huge THANK YOU to Hempfest for making sure I could access all I needed to and a thank you to MJBA for giving me platform that allows me to go more places and share with the world what happens behind the scenes.
