Colorado: Crowds gather for 4/20 rally

Category: Events | Posted on Wed, April, 20th 2011 by THCFinder
Thousands of marijuana enthusiasts are converging upon Denver's Civic Center Park for an event that has come to symbolize Colorado's burgeoning claim as the nation's cannabis capital.
Denver's annual April 20th pro-marijuana smoke-out — known as the 420 Rally — is reputedly the largest of its kind in the world on a day that has come to be regarded as a ganja holiday. Organizers expect the rally to draw tens of thousands of people, though police have generally estimated past rallies at fewer than 10,000 participants. A similar, slightly smaller event is expected to take place on the University of Colorado campus in Boulder.
The signature moment of the rally occurs at 4:20 p.m., when participants collectively light up and a thick cloud of marijuana smoke rises over the park. Organizers say the goal of the rally is to bring people together to protest peacefully marijuana prohibition.
Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said officers will monitor the event but do not plan a crack-down.
"We're going to use discretion as we always do in how he handle the situation," Jackson said. "But officers will be out there to ensure public safety."
This year's rally marks the unofficial kick-off to the annual conference of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, or NORML, which starts tomorrow in Denver. In announcing the conference, NORML lauded Colorado as a relative pot paradise.
"Colorado has emerged as the geographic center of legal medical cannabis in America," the organization wrote in a news release. "... Cannabis commerce has come of age during the country's longest and steepest recession, (and) Colorado is at the center of this public discussion and positive changes in laws."


Seattle's first cannabis farmers market attracts several hundred Sunday

Category: Events | Posted on Mon, February, 28th 2011 by THCFinder

As at most farmers markets, table after table came stocked with goodies, touted for their locally grown, healthy, organic qualities. Baby boomers in berets mingled with twenty-somethings in dreadlocks, eyeballing potted plants, pasta, pizza, cute little cupcakes and Mason jars full of green buds — lots of jars.

This was not your grandpa's market. It was the first Cannabis Farmers Market in Seattle. And an estimated 600 medical-marijuana patients strolled through the doors of the Little Red Studio in the South Lake Union neighborhood to partake, organizers said.

One patient from West Seattle said she never expected to see anything quite like it, especially at 11 a.m. on a Sunday.

"Not in my lifetime," said Nancy, 61, who didn't want to disclose her last name for privacy reasons. She uses cannabis to ease her chronic back pain and said it was nice to be able to talk to some of the two dozen pot providers on hand about the effects of various strains.

And what strains they were. The purple- and orange-tinged buds sported names such as Dark Vader, Kungfoo Goo, White Widow, Green Queen and God. And vendor names? Among them, the Herban Collective and Delectable Medibles.

Brochures described their qualities in terms that could have been cribbed from a sommelier. The Black Rhino sold at Ken's Medicine Bowl has a "subtle berry scent" and "full bodied fruity flavor." The White Knight features "complex fragrance" with "hints of citrus" flavor.

Proprietor Ken Bell, a patient himself, said he was looking forward to a day when marijuana was legal and he was taxed for selling it.

The idea for the farmers market — first held in Tacoma late last year — is primarily to help patients living in outlying areas connect with providers who tend to run their businesses in larger cities, said Philip Dawdy, a spokesman for the market. Participants were required to provide identification and a doctor's authorization to take marijuana. Because of the vagueness of current state law, and varying interpretations by law-enforcement agencies, Dawdy said, some patients don't have consistent and safe access to medical cannabis.

Market founder Jeremy Miller said he plans to bring the market to Seattle twice next month, while hitting Tacoma and Olympia on the remaining weekends.

Miller said he felt welcome in Seattle, where voters approved Initiative 75 in 2003. The measure made arresting and jailing adults for possessing personal amounts of pot the Police Department's lowest law-enforcement priority.

There was no sign of police Sunday morning at the event. "It's not a big deal," police spokesman Sean Whitcomb said in an interview before the event. "Our priorities are a reflection of community priorities."



Hundreds expected at marijuana expo in Maine

Category: Events | Posted on Sat, February, 26th 2011 by THCFinder

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- Hundreds of people are expected to attend and 20 to 30 exhibitors will be on hand at this weekend's Maine Medical Marijuana Expo 2011.

The show is being held Saturday and Sunday at Portland's Fireside Inn. Exhibitors include grow suppliers, medical marijuana caregivers, dispensary operators, consultants and a medical marijuana attorney. The expo is billed as an educational and informational event for medical marijuana patients and others with an interest in medical marijuana.

Charlie Wynott of the nonprofit Maine Medical Marijuana Resource Center, which is putting on the event, says there will also be a number of speakers.

Wynott said hundreds if not thousands of people are expected.



Hempfest may not happen in 2011

Category: Events | Posted on Fri, February, 11th 2011 by THCFinder

With no confirmed venue and no confirmed dates, Seattle Hempfest, the world's largest annual cannabis protestival, is fighting for its life.

Hempfest has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against the City of Seattle in an effort to get a 2011 permit to produce the annual free speech rally, which aims to reform America's cannabis prohibition.
The lawsuit calls the city's unwillingness to delay planned construction, or to stage the work to accomodate Hempfest, "unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious."
The suit, which also includes Seattle's mayor, director of the Seattle Department of Transportation, director of Seattle Center, and chairperson of the Seattle Special Events Committee, asks the city to issue an appropriate permit for Seattle Hempfest in August 2011.
The lawsuit also seeks, if necessary, to stop Seattle from implementing the West Thomas Overpass project in such a way as to interfere with the use of Hempfest's home, Myrtle Edwards  Park, in August 2011. Planned summer construction of the skybridge in Myrtle Edwards Park, which has been the location of Hempfest since 1995, has displaced the mammoth event which routinely draws more than 100,000 attendees annually.
