Seattle Hempfest and buying single seeds

Seattle Hempfest is held annually in Seattle, Washington, it’s the world biggest gathering to advocate the decriminalisation of marijuana. It began in 1991 as the Washington Hemp Expo, which was self-described as a “humble gathering of stoners” and was attended by only 500 people. The following year it was re-named as Hempfest and it has grown to become a 2-day annual political rally, with concerts as well as arts and crafts fairs, with attendance typically over 250,000. It is held in the third weekend of August each year and the event takes over three Seattle waterfront parks.

Over the years there have been many famous speakers and attendees to the Hempfest, including, but not limited to former Dallas Cowboys centre Mark Stepnoski, actor / activist Woody Harleson as well as bands / performers such as Rehab and Pato Banton.

The first Hempfest saw “blatant medical marijuana” smoking, and in 1997 60 people were cited for illegal marijuana use, roughly 20 people were arrested the following year. As the scale of the Hemfest grew the police and the event organisers reached a mutual agreement, in many ways to agree to disagree and from this there was only one arrest in 2001. Over the years the political landscape surrounding marijuana had changed in Seattle as well as Washington. Medical marijuana was legalised in Washington 1998 and in 2003, Seattle passed an initiative that made the personal use of marijuana by an adult the city’s lowest law enforcement priority.
