Seattleites gathered over the weekend to spark up in the park for Hempfest 2017, the country’s oldest weed festival. As is tradition, Myrtle Edwards filled up with smokin’ folks celebrating God’s greenest (or the Devil’s lettuce, depending on who you ask). That other green everybody loves—money—was also front and center. Now 26 years deep into its run, Hempfest has hit serious financial bumps and its future is uncertain, so, unsurprisingly, calls for donations were even more prevalent than usual (legally, Hempfest can’t charge admission). Even though reality is a harsh toke sometimes, that didn’t stop the crowds from smoking that loud.
