With more and more states legalizing recreational marijuana use, there should be no surprise that marijuana-centered festivals are seeing a rise in recent years. Everything from HempFest in Seattle to mini festivals all over the world on April 20th, all celebrating cannabis in a variety of ways. In this session we’ll take a look at how to create a tasteful cannabis-centered festival while abiding to the the laws of the land, working with local authorities and positively raising awareness of cannabis use.
