Humboldt Hemp Fest–Including Mary Jane the Musical
Wait! I haven’t gotten my tickets to Mary Jane the Musical yet! What am I thinking? I need to buy them today! I forced my family to go to it last June. They muttered and grumbled but they came. And they loved it. We’re all going again. This is a unique Humboldt experience. If you haven’t seen it, just make the time and do it.
And it is just the kicker to the 21st annual Humboldt Hemp fest which has lots of wonderful music (including The Fabulous Resinaires), comedy, dance, things to buy…I can’t wait.

Then on Sunday, November 13th, the weekend’s festivities will culminate with a free hemp fest forum.
Doors open at 1:30pm with forum from 2pm to 6pm. Sponsored by 707 Cannabis College, this event
will offer a panel discussion featuring a wide variety of expert speakers on current topics ranging from
