On Saturday September 17, the city of Boston held the annual Hempfest celebration. The festival is meant to bring awareness to the issue of legalization of marijuana. It is also a place were smokers can meet others who enjoy the same hobby or may use the plant for medical reasons. Many who attend are there to support the legalization of marijuana and to show others how the plant can bring more good to the world than bad.
The festival was held at the Boston Commons with free admission all day. There was music, food, and vendors selling marijuana accessories. Many Lasell students who attended the festival were there to help support the efforts in legalization. This shows that marijuana effects all different types of people
Besides the great amount of smoke in the commons area, it was even fun for people who did not smoke. Everyone was able to enjoy their time and see the different lifestyles of people who support the legalization efforts. The day was an overall success and a great time for all.
