Welcome to Hempfest a.k.a The boston freedom rally

This past Saturday I attended my fourth Boston Freedom Rally Aka Hempfest, an annual Educational Cannabis and Music Festival held in Boston Common, Boston MA. Massachusetts Cannabis Reform (MassCann) is a non – profit public education organization working for the moderation of Marijuana laws. The event happens annually on the third Saturday in September and it’s a festival that’s been happening for the last 30 years. Moreover, MassCann advocates through their campaigns for Cannabis reform laws and social justice for minorities communities who are unjustly incarcerated for the usage of the plant. Furthermore, MassCann also campaigns for the legalization of hemp agriculture expanding medical marijuana programs and moving the regulation of the herb out from under the drug war armory of mandatory minimums, asset forfeiture, license confiscation, urine testing, and so on (Cited from MassCann site). This is a succinct explanation of the event background, for more information check out the website link below.
