Hempfest does pot smokers a goddamned disservice. It makes us look like idiots. (And reminds me of this classic from the Onion: “Gay-Pride Parade Sets Mainstream Acceptance Of Gays Back 50 Years.”)
So let’s quit the bitching and get right to it: What kind of counter-programming should we plan for next year?
Someone at Smoke Farm suggested assembling 100 people to get high on the sidewalk in front of SAM and then wander around the museum. Someone else suggested we rent a bunch of hotel rooms downtown for a variety of highfalutin, not-dumb entertainments: movies, history and science lectures, string quartets. (Or at least cellist Paul Rucker, who’s a kind of one-man quartet.)
Maybe we should hold a “math-in”—get stoned in the park and take refresher courses in geometry and algebra.
Anything would be better than what Hempfest is now.
