WASHINGTON: This past weekend saw the 24th annual Seattle Hempfest in Myrtle Edwards Park along Seattle’s beautiful waterfront. Visitors came from around the country and the world to experience a treasure of the cannabis legalization movement.
While the crowds were lighter than usual due to a major rainstorm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday saw the park swell with enthusiasts, activists, and marijuana industry leaders.
The yearly ‘Protestival’ is designed to celebrate the cannabis, the cannabis community and stand as a reminder that while marijuana may be legal in Washington, there is still a long ways to go in the War On Drugs.
MJ Headline News was there to capture the crowds, the speakers, and the backstage magic. Check out the slideshow here:
