When Weed Got Loud and Proud in Public

The US Constitution affirms the public's right to peacefully assemble and protest the government. That includes throwing a freak-powered cannabis festival Seattle Hempfest co-founder Vivian McPeak recalls the event's radical roots as a "protestival" occupation of a public park, and the glory days of legends like Jack Herer and Woody Harrelson addressing 100,000+ stoners at 4:20 from the main stage amid a massive cloud of smoke Vivian also explains how a combination of hippie idealism, pothead pragmatism, mutual support and civil disobedience helped establish Seattle Hempfest as a people-powered working model for every freaky weed fest to follow.. Plus the inside story of the first-annual Bong-A-Thon, and a weed pun battle for the ages. Learn more and get involved at and check out Vivian's podcast Hempresent.
