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.

Cannabis competition charity event ruined by High Times and the man!

Category: Events | Posted on Wed, November, 10th 2010 by THCFinder

Kevin Reed can't catch a break. Reed, the CEO of medical cannabis delivery service The Green Cross, has for the past three years hosted an annual pot party/fundraiser called the SF Cannabis Cup (re-dubbed the "Cannabis Competition" for this year's fete due to copyright concerns), in which a select group of judges -- all medical cannabis patients -- get completely ripped as they sample roughly 60 of the best grams of cannabis, concentrates, and edibles Bay Area dispensaries have to offer.

The fourth annual iteration is this Sunday, Nov. 14 -- but after a few calls from SFPD forced a costly venue change, all of the funds that were to go to the SF chapter of Americans for Safe Access have been eaten up. And now, New York City-based cannabis culture magazine High Times is threatening Reed with legal action, promising at least $75,000 in legal fees as well as seizing all of the proceeds from the event if Reed goes forward.

If you can’t afford these hefty prices for judge’s passes you can simply buy a single ticket admission to the expo at the PowerZone for 30 Euros. So for all you who are thinking of going to this event do not hesitate as you will get to sample some of the finest marijuana that the world has to offer.
