    i go to school in the Boston area and was just wondering if there.s any special celebration or smoke-out or anything like that... i.ve heard of one on the common, i know they do hempfest and all that, but anything on 420? i mean, it would be rad to just chill w my friends all day and smoke mad blunts/bongs/vaps, but what if i could do that with a massive amount of people? :stoned:
  2. The common has potfest type event on 4/20 after last year i wouldnt carry there though. Nor would i smoke on the common anymore during 4/20 cause the cops are everywhere.

    Massachusetts is NOT a medical state and the hempfests that happen every year are NOT free-for-alls where you an publicly smoke. They are geared towards activism and awareness and the event planners always ask that festivalgoers leave their herb at home until we can make some real progress changing the laws.

    The Amherst Extravaganja is held the Saturday closest to Earth Day every year on Amherst town common (intersection of rt 116 and rt 9). It's sponsored by the UMass Cannabis Reform Coalition. I hope they get better speakers this year. But the bands last year were good, especially the one from down Cape that reminded me a little of a homegrown No Doubt. Damn that chick could sing.

    The Boston hempfest is in September and held outside the statehouse on the Boston Common. They have excellent political speakers but I wasn't so impressed with the music selections (death metal at 11am? OY!).
  4. Theres really nothing on the common on 4/20? I remember my sister and her older friends going somewhere in boston on 4/20. Anyway last year at hempfest they made two high profile arrests which i think they are going to regret.

    Oh there might be, but the big MassCann one is in September.
    Yup- a very high-profile full-time activist and his attorney. They'd ducked behind a structure for a quick puff and *bam*

    The Amherst Extravaganja is on this year. The Umass Cannabis Reform Coalition has a website that should be pretty easy to find. I think it's this Saturday but don't take my word for it, lol.

    FIRST learn a little before you speak

    YES boston does have a hemp celebration complete w high times coverage and norml attendance. It is in late sep to early oct changes every year. used to be called hempfest now they changed it to freedomfest or some bs but we still call it hempfest. Now in MA under an OZ is decriminalized I KNOW it a 100 fine but it wasnt alway that way. ive been going since 03 and they have an amnesty day: light em up if u gottem as the t conducters is known to say, at worst you risked a confiscation and this is a time when i personally went to jail for a bowlpack.
