  • Wow how times have really changed!

  • Go to where for all the details? ? Thanks

  • Woohoo! We’ll be there,

  • I would like to go to a pot event without the same music every time. How about some rock or country music?

  • Maybe they should hold this on the Arcata plaza , the manure flies in Ferndale are attracted to patchouli oil and could be quite a sight to see!

  • So sick of reggae it all sounds the same. Those stupid wooks love that shit.

  • Honeydew Bridge Chump

    Need to forward this to the dea so this terrorist grouping can be surveillance documented, cell phone registered, and cross referenced with assets and tax returns.

    Dope isn’t an okay thing, it’s harmful and wrong.

    • Actually its you who is harmful and wrong.

      • I concur 250%, it’s ridiculous that someone in this enlightened day & age would still be caught up in the “Reefer Madness Syndrome”!!!

    • Don’t worry. Advance agents will be surveying and recording attendees, especially contestants and judges. When Trump is inaugurated we will see how the info is used by the new DEA program focused on federal marijuana conspiracy and racketeering. The new federal courthouse in McKinleyville is ready. Expect a major government effort to confiscate assets from and prosecute the blatant major producers of the devil’s lettuce! We will soon have our county back from these cartels.

    • “Dope isn’t an okay thing, it’s harmful and wrong.” You are 100% correct. However, cannabis is not dope.

    • You sound harmful and wrong

  • Hypocrite View Bitch Champ

    the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

  • 25 years and still growing

    Music. I’m way more REDNECK THAN RASTA. We grow way more than Rasta.
    And DRED LOCKS don’t make the Rasta Man. So how about some country – blue grass.

  • 70’s and 80’s too.mix it up!I just love music it makes me happy!!can’t wait to see everyone’s wears!!it’s just nice that folks don’t have to hide anymore.been a long time coming!

  • Well, “BLESS HER HEART”!

  • WAIT!! This is going to take place at the Ferndale fairgrounds?? Funny. They rented a building out one year and an orgy took place along with cannabis smoking. They got all fired up about the weed and said never again. Money, making people go against their own word since it was created.

    On a side note, the first one sucked and Im sure this one will too.

    • So you won’t be going?that’s to bad

      • Is this an attempt at sarcasm? No, I will not waste my time and money on this event. Complete lack luster. Who knows, maybe they will pull a rabbit out of the hat and this one will be one to remember.

        • Ya,sometimes the first ones are slow and takes awhile to catch on.who knows this one might be fun.hate to see you miss out on fun.

          • Quite frankly, it’s hard to get excited to hang out at a place, surrounded by mediocre cannabis. The reality is only about 2.5% of the cannabis that will be showcased is actually good. Every booth I visited I thought to myself “i would be embarrassed to show this”. Oh well, different strokes for different folks.

            • Humboldt underground

              Because anyone who actually grows good weed stays under the radar and isn’t looking for attention about how good their weed is.

            • Try hitting the Kind Solutions booth, Jah. Topshelf cannabis from Humboldt’s best producers. They have the best cannabis available anywhere at any price. Come by and stay High!

  • Rosemarie von Boomhower

    Anyone who knows their Bible, which I don’t, but I came across this passage while looking for something else, ” that all plants that produce seeds was put here for man’s consumption.”

    So put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    • That’s awsome!!

    • “God said, ‘Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat'”.
      Book of Genesis 1:29
      King James

      • Actually all plants on Earth (cannibas, opium poppies, coca plants, psilocybe mushrooms…) were in the Garden of Eden. Provided for us by God, in Paradise.

  • Tired of Garbage Music

    It’s true were all over this racist reggae music perpetuated by a bunch of thieves under the guise of something sacred… Get out of here! I thought the point was to go back to Africa?!
