If you are interested in the cannabis culture and live in or near Washington DC, this is your chance to go to the 3rd annual National Cannabis Festival. Maybe you’re even willing to take a little trip just for it. Last year we met plenty of people from all over the country. The event will take place on April 21 across from the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, and there will be a plethora of cannabis celebration.
Of course, the festival is not only about having a good time; there is also a big focus on advocacy, education, and activism related to marijuana. The festival is an excellent place to educate yourself on the plant.
The festival started when a group of cannabis enthusiasts got together and had the idea to create this event. The whole purpose was to celebrate the progress of marijuana legalization in District of Columbia and other U.S. states. Despite the fact that the concept started in 2015, right after the passing of Initiative 71, a voter-approved initiative that legalized cannabis for recreational use in DC, the festival debut came on April 23 of 2016.
