Earlier this year, when The Stranger referred to Hempfest as a "patchouli-stained ghetto," event organizers lost their fucking minds. Despite our pointing to the gigantic tie-dyes hanging from the stage (and prayer wheels and dream flags or whatever), they insisted Hempfest wasn't a hippie thing. We hope so. Lots of people smoke pot and want to advocate for their personal liberty without having to haul around cultural luggage from 40 years ago. We trust that the stages at this year's Hempfest will be tie-dye-free—right, Hempfest organizers? (Myrtle Edwards Park, 3130 Alaskan Wy W, www.hempfest.org. 10 am–8 pm, free.)
