The Red Rock Hempfest was a cozy event located tucked away in the scenic valley of a Sedona Arizona Plaza. It was quite a change from the busy packed crowds that we are used to when we attend recreational state cannabis events, such as the the Seattle Hempfest every year in August. The Event was family friendly and hosted a great line up of performing artists, vending booths, and products. There was a handful of people who attended to support the cannabis industry in Arizona, but unfortunately it wasn’t the scenario where people were very open about using it. Unlike Recreational states, Arizona laws still treat cannabis as a ” schedule 1″ controlled substance, meaning if you do not have a medical card and carry over the legal limit you can face felony charges and jail time. Arizona has some of the strictest marijuana laws in the country despite being neighbors with the likes of a recreational state like Colorado and Nevada. The State was set back in the progression of cannabis reform in November 2016 when it did not successfully pass Proposition 205, which would have legalized recreational marijuana across the state. Grassroots groups and established dispensaries will need to collaborate more effectively to finally win passage of recreational pot , period. It was an upsetting matter to hear that the latest recreational marijuana initiative didn’t gather enough signatures to qualify for the ballot in 2018. That’s why there are events such as the Red Rock Sedona in Arizona held annually to help build the community. It really was quite relaxing as the Sedona Hempfest took place in a location noted for its mild climate and vibrant arts community. Uptown Sedona is dense with New Age shops, spas and art galleries perfect for a gathering to help raise awareness and legalization for recreational cannabis use.
