About this Event
Founded by the Hemp and Cannabis Foundation, the annual Hempstalk Festival in Portland, Oregon advocates decriminalization of marijuana for medicinal, industrial, and recreational use. It takes place the weekend after Labor Day in September, and features food vendors, live music, guest speakers and information booths. The public event has always been free to attend.
According to Paul Stanford, founder and presenting sponsor of the event, “Hempstalk is about the many uses of agricultural hemp fiber, oil, protein, fuel and medicine. We are working to end adult cannabis prohibition, allow adults to grow their own and license the legal sale of psychoactive cannabis to adults. We believe that hemp will save the Earth’s biosphere with the adoption of hemp seed for bio-diesel fuel, which will solve the energy and world hunger problems, and stop deforestation when hemp fiber is used for paper and building materials.”
