It’s a Carnival, but It’s Our Carnival: The 2014 Seattle Hempfest

It’s a Carnival, but It’s Our Carnival: The 2014 Seattle Hempfest

by Keith Stroup, NORML Legal Counsel

I just returned a few days ago from the annual Seattle Hempfest, the 24th version of this extravaganza, and I thought I might share some of my reflections on this extraordinary and unique event.

First and foremost, Hempfest is truly an enormous undertaking that requires several days of long hours to assemble the stages and hundreds of individual exhibitor and vendor booths; three days of long hours to manage, including a security team to guard the park overnight and provisions to feed the hundreds of volunteers each day; and then several days of equally long hours to disassemble everything, clean the grounds and replace any damaged turf.
