Over the weekend Hampshire Cannabis Community threw their annual beach get together on Eastney Beach, Hampshire.
The Hampshire Cannabis Community Cannabis awareness Picnic 2017, now in its 5th year, was held so cannabis consumers from across the country could come together and raise awareness, spreading the good message that cannabis must be legalised for all adults in the UK.
This was our second time attending the event, which grew this year with multiple tents and stalls, despite the windy weather, as people travelled from across the country to attend.
We arrived around 1pm, with the event scheduled to kick off around then. Although the weather was a bit windy on the beach, the sun shone for a lot of the afternoon and the hours flew by.
The event took place close to the Isle of Wight, which could be seen from the Beach. I was tempted to try and swim there, but was advised against it. Maybe I’ll do it one day!
The local Portsmouth news also came down to report on the day, and you can read their article here. They quoted me talking about cannabis:
Tyler Green, 28, who runs cannabis-themed media channel iSmoke, travelled from London to attend.
He said: ‘I have been consuming cannabis for about a decade.
‘I use cannabis to reach a high state of consciousness.’
As well as a new crowd of diverse cannabis consumers, attendees included regular faces and it was good to catch up with Smoke Loud UK, Mark from Dab Rigs, Nannies Gourmet Edibles, Basingstoke Dank, Greg from UKCSC and more.
Overall, we had a great day and it was good to see another successful cannabis event. We will always support the good work of Hampshire Cannabis Community and these events show some of the hard work they put in to raise awareness in their local area.
