UPDATE: the Longmont Times-Call has the festival recap:
Others were capitalizing in different ways. On the main convention floor (separated from the patients-only room), one could find pipes, bowls, stickers, even security systems. One booth even promoted a candidate for Congress.
It's a familiar problem that the Indy is more than sympathetic to: you want to gather, catch some live tunes, maybe purchase some medicinal cannabis, possibly have it tested and maybe, if there's time, get down with some enlightenment, education and empowerment.
Meet the inaugural Sacred Herb Festival.
More than 50 vendors will come together from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. this Sunday, May 30 at the Longmont Radisson Hotel to learn about and celebrate the "sacred herb."
"The first annual Sacred Herb Festival is Colorado's first medical marijuana event organized for the right reasons," says Professor Dana K. May in a release, who will be speaking at the event. "This isn't about money or politics but rather healing and reeducating a generation who has been fed lies of 'reefer madness.'"
The festival is open to the public — though you must be 18-and-up to partake — and will set you back $5 bucks. No MMJ card needed for entry, though recommended (read: required) to purchase medication.
