Episode Info:

The World's biggest Protestival, Seattle Hempfest, deserves an enormous amount of credit for the progress towards legalization that we enjoy today. Founded in 1991, this annual gathering of activists, enthusiasts, and casual users as well as non-users, has captured the attention of this cultural movement from people around the globe. In today's politicized landscape of Cannabis, the event is more important than ever, representing an homage to the rights we citizens have gained, as well as a triumphant display of unity in the face of progress that remains to be made toward full Cannabis normalization. Presently, the city of Seattle and the Liquor and Cannabis Board are actively attempting to silence the right to publicly celebrate this controversial plant. Please join the Leaf Life team as we touch on the amazing journey of legendary co-founder Vivian McPeak while he reminisces about the early struggles and shares his outlook on the battle for the future of Hempfest. GUESTS: Vivian McPeakCo-founder of Seattle Hempfest, former rock star hopeful, all-around badass.
