National group takes on Seattle Hempfest, denounces ‘corporate pot’

A national organization is critical of this weekend’s Hempfest event in Seattle, and is paying for ads in at least one Seattle publication encouraging people to reconsider using marijuana.

According to the group called SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana), events like Hempfest are enabling the next “big tobacco.”

“Well you know, Hempfest is thought of as the old festival of people who just like to smoke pot and use hemp, and ‘what’s the big deal?'” says SAM President Kevin Sabet. “In reality, if you look at the sponsors, they’ve been taken over by corporate pot.”
