20 years of Hempfest lights up

Category: Events | Posted on Fri, August, 19th 2011 by THCFinder
SEATTLE -- This weekend marks 20 years of the Hempfest Seattle festival as a Northwest fixture of marijuana discussion.
Hempfest Seattle opens for the 20th year Friday at Myrtle Edwards Park, and continues all weekend.
"Hempfest is first and foremost a political protest rally seeking to change America's pot laws and to educate the public on the many uses of the cannabis plant," organizers write on their website.
But this year's festival promises to stoke even more conversation, with Washington's medical marijuana laws undergoing a transformation over the summer.
It is no longer legal to operate a medical marijuana dispensary in the state. Instead, "collective gardens" are permitted, allowing up to 10 licensed patients 40 medical marijuana plants for their use. Several cities, including Kirkland and Tacoma, have enacted a temporary moratorium on the gardens to more closely examine the law.
"Of course Hempfest is about cannabis," reads the website, "industrial hemp, medical marijuana and recreational use by otherwise law abiding, responsible adults..."
A handful of elected legislators will be on hand to speak to crowds at the event. Saturday features former presidential candidate Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D, Ohio), as well as State Representatives Mary Lou Dickerson (D-Seattle) and Roger Goodman (D-Kirkland). Kucinich publicly supports legalizing marijuana across the U.S.
Hempfest is free to attend, but a $10 donation is suggested.


Downtown Oakland To Host Huge, Open-Air Cannabis Expo

Category: Events | Posted on Mon, July, 11th 2011 by THCFinder
Organizers expect up to 30,000 cannabis fans to flood into Frank H. Ogawa Plaza in front of Oakland City Hall September 3rd and 4th for The International Cannabis and Hemp Expo 2011.
Tickets just went on sale for the event, which is scheduled to feature three entertainment stages, 300 to 400 industry vendors, dozens of food trucks, and guest celebrities, experts and politicians from the movement.
“It's the first time ever a city shut down streets [for such an event]”, said Salwa Ibrahim, government relations coordinator for INTCHE 2011. “It's a big deal for Oakland.”
The annual event's usual home is the Cow Palace in Daly City, but venue operators there denied INTCHE 2011 a “215 area," citing recent ecstasy overdose deaths at an unrelated rave as cause
But stuck-up Daly City's loss will be Oakland's gain. INTCHE is going to attract massive foot traffic to places like Cafe Van Kleef and Flora, said Ibrahim. The 12th Street BART stop is just a block away, and bike racks will be brought in for cyclists.
“Local businesses have been amazingly supportive because there's really nothing going on the weekend other than Pride. It's a real opportunity to bring as many people as possible to downtown Oakland. We're looking forward to other businesses benefiting,” she said.
Yes, Oakland plans on having its own version of “Pride” that weekend — pleasant coincidence, said Ibrahim, as the plight of stoners is increasingly compared to that of the gays.
“In many ways, pot is the new gay,” said Ibrahim, who has been an assistant to Rich Lee at Oaksterdam. “We've often considered campaign to encourage people to come out of the closet.”
The 2011 Expo will feature an open-air “215” area for medical marijuana patients right in front of City Hall in the Plaza. City officials were adamant that no smoking could occur on the plaza grass itself, but other than that, “it's kind of a natural fit. I think that it should be in Oakland. What we're trying to do is make Oakland and Oaksterdam a tourist destination and this really solidifies that,” she said.
“The police have been extremely helpful and willing to work with us,” she added.
