Nowadays there is a growing tendency to conduct various events connected with the miraculous cannabis. But what is it: an attempt to draw publicity’s attention to legalise this herb worldwide, a sign of people’s madness or just a new way of having fun? Let’s have a look at some to our mind gripping events and clear it up.
The 1st fest is The Great Midwest Harvest Festival that was held in Madison, Wisconsin on September, 30 – October, 2 this year. They call themselves on the official page on Facebook “The nation’s longest running “legalization” Festival”. There you could you listen to speakers who support the idea of legalisation of marijuana use in different spheres of life. Of course it was accompanied with music events and bands’ performances. And the particular feature was Parade/March to Capitol Steps. For more information visit the Harvest Festival site.

It’s impossible not to mention The SEATTLE Hempfest that was held on August, 19-21 this year. According to its official website the mission of the Hempfest is “To educate the public on the myriad applications of the cannabis plant, the laws about its use, efforts for reform, and conducting business in the new legal environment”. The celebration of its 25th anniversary
was accompanied with a thoroughly planned and conducted series of different events with musical performances, seminars, the extensive speakers’ list. Such a sophisticated preparation and conduct confirms the intense development not only the festival itself but a change in people’s minds and approaching changes in all spheres of life concerned the use of hemp. This great rally proves that it’s high time to get rid of existing stereotypes.

To finish our short review on prominent cannabis events we’d like to stop on a bright expo devoted to the day that most people look forward to – a wedding. On January, 16 at Denver’s Point Gallery there was held The Cannabis Wedding Expo. It attracted lots of people and no wonder why. Vendors demonstrated brides and grooms different variants for food, drinks, gifts, bouquets and photography using weed. By the way the idea of weed weddings has been increasing that’s why we expect Cannabis Wedding Expo boom!

In conclusion we must admit that wide spreading of marijuana is worth noticing. It’s a new stage in our world and of course everybody needs to understand that something once been an enemy can be a friend within reasonable limits. So let’s broaden our outlook and explore these limits.
