For the 25th Anniversary of Seattle’s Hempfest, we sent photographer Kelly O down to the waterfront to ask festival-goers this hard hitting question: How high are you?
This Dude With a Big-Ass Bong “Well, I’m ALMOST to where I wanna be.”
Punk Rock Kim “I just got here, so on a high-scale of 1-to-10, I’m only about a 5. I plan to get to about an 8. I did bring a couple joints.”
Dale (L) “I’m a kinda ‘Scooby Met Shaggy For The First Time’ high.” Taniko(C) “I’m BLAZED!” Lexie “I’m about to go higher—my edible just hit me! Something called a ‘Forbidden Flower Chew.’”
Sister Bhakti Shakti “Uh… About 6 foot?”
“Best Bud” Nick (L) “Zero. Nada. Not high. I’m on active duty in the military.”
Andrew “Only moderately high. I forgot, and only brought one joint here today” The Stranger “Do you know a guy named Punk Rock Kim?”
DJ Ravish (L) “This is my first Hempfest. I think, on a scale of 1-to-10, I’m about a 105? I’ve drank, eaten, and smoked EVERYTHING.” Cass “Way too high, way too high, way too high…”
The Stranger “Wait, what the hell IS that thing?!” Paul “It’s called an Infinium Water Pipe. It’s the last bong you’ll ever want to own. You can smoke up to four different strands in it at once.” The Stranger “On a scale of 1-to-10, how high could that thing get you?” Paul “You could probably be at least a 25 in one hit.”
Chris “Eh, I’m normal.” The Stranger “What’s “normal” for you?” Chris “About a 7 or 8. I do a dab or an edible just about every day.”
Purple Lady Tanah (R) “Not nearly high enough! YET!”
Gerald “Just look at these French fries. Have you ever seen so many French fries?”

BONUS SHOT AND QUESTION: If a famous porn star is walking into an event, just as you are leaving, do you turn around and go back in?
