I hope all of you free thinking Americans and Canadians who can make the trip will get out there and support this event. If you live in the Seattle area please attend for me. I live in Florida. But were I closer I would be there. I have been involved in the movement since “Proposition 13” in Southern California back in the day… 1978 I believe.
But i feel, finally, I we have arrived at the beginning of the down hill road. That doesn’t mean we slow down. No sir. It means we speed up. Make more and more of the unknowing aware of the REAL facts. and shout them louder. STOP BLAMING ALL YOUR DRUG PROBLEMS ON THIS PLANT. . . . EDITOR

Seattle, WA: Event organizers are expecting to break attendance records this weekend for the 21st annual Seattle Hempfest, taking place this Friday through Sunday at Myrtle Edwards Park along the downtown Seattle waterfront.
Hempfest has drawn crowds in excesses of 250,000 people over the three day ‘protestival’.
One of the main focuses of this year Hempfest is Washington’s legalization voter initiative, Initiative 502. Washington is one of three states this fall where voters have the opportunity to substantively reform their state’s cannabis laws, effectively ending cannabis prohibition. Oregon and Colorado voters also have legalization ballots this fall.
Over 60 musical acts and over one hundred speakers — including NORML Founder Keith Stroup, I-502 sponsor, NORML Advisory Board member and travel expert Rick Steves, numerous NORML board members and chapter coordinators, members of Seattle’s City Council, former law enforcement officials and dozens of cannabis law reform activists will participate in the event from numerous stages and at the ‘Hemposium’ educational tent.
A list of speakers is found here.
A complete line-up of this year’s scheduled events, musicians, and speakers is available online at:http://www.hempfest.org/.
