Hempapalooza started in 2104 as a Medical Cannabis Farmer's Market. Local residents were invited to show off their wares, and educate people on the medicinal uses of Cannabis. Organizers did not charge vendors fees and opened the doors to the public. Children under 18 were accompanied by an adult and only MMJ patients were permitted to transact with MMJ vendors. The event was attended by County Commissioner Candidates and press. The day was filled with lively discussion about the medical benefits of Cannabis, as well as, the state and federal challeges still faced by patients and advocates.
Founders Nicole Black and Nathan Pritchett talk about their inspiration for Hempapalooza and some of the important reasons why they support Medical Cannabis policy development and localization as a sustainable alternative to global industry.
