Organizers of the Seattle Hempfest have also announced their theme: "Building Bridges." As the group explains in Dope Magazine this month, it's a recognition of the newly built pedestrian overpass into the park from lower Queen Anne. Forget about the only pot legalization initiative to ever reach the ballot in Washington State... there's an overpass to celebrate!!

What a great proverbial bridge to build, welcoming those who oppose the state's first shot at legalization. Bridges! To your enemies! Instead of a landmark achievement! How totally gay-pride of them!
