The 25th anniversary of Seattle HEMPFEST is August 19-21 2016, in Seattle naturally 😉
Seattle Hempfest is an annual event in Seattle, Washington, the world’s largest annual gathering advocating decriminalization of marijuana. Founded in 1991 as the Washington Hemp Expo, a self-described “humble gathering of stoners” attended by only 500 people, and renamed the following year as Hempfest, it has grown into a three-day annual political rally, concert, and arts and crafts fair with attendance typically over 400,000
Hemp History Week 2016 is officially here and this a great time to Inspire hemp legalization with all the festivals and gatherings happening summer. With several states now legalizing cannabis , the Industrial Hemp discussion is now more prevalent and relevant. It is a real reality, a real option that many people have been advocating for decades and now those people with the help of the “new” advocates that are being found and created now will have a better, stronger chance of reintroducing Industrial Hemp to our farms, our industries, our lifestyle.

Industrial Hemp use has been around for thousands of years, in varied forms. In my opinion, we should still be using #hemp today industrially, it’s reliable, affordable and sustainable.
