Some Great Speeches from Seattle Hempfest 2012

Category: Events | Posted on Fri, August, 24th 2012 by THCFinder

The largest pro-marijuana rally in the world took place last weekend, and there were some great speeches from a wide variety of people, something Seattle’s Hempfest is known for.


Speakers in the videos below include Keith Stroup, legal counsel for and one of the founding members of NORML; Rick Steves, travel writer and marijuana law reform activist; Ngaio Bealum, a comedian who provides some great comic relief; Dan Rush from the United Food and Commercial Worker’s Union in CA; and Libertarian Party Vice Presidential candidate Judge Jim Gray.


They all bring different life experiences to the issue of marijuana legalization, and therefore they all come at the issue with different perspectives and from different angles. But they all agree in the absolute failure of marijuana prohibition, and what a destructive force it has been.


In the end, the marijuana law reform movement is nothing more than the people who comprise it; luckily we have a lot of good people fighting out there.
