It's almost Memorial Day Weekend, and what better time to get outside, lay on the grass, and get hella high, right? The very real Cannabis and Hemp Association sure thinks so. They're throwing a picnic and poetry party in the park on Governors Island, and you're invited. There will be an edibles-friendly picnic and barbecue, as all outdoor summer gatherings must have, but also music and an open mic to share poems—about weed! And all they ask is for a $10-$15 donation to help pay for snacks, and your friendly presence. From Cannabis and Hemp's site:
On Sunday, May 24, 2015, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm, the CHA invites New York City’s blossoming cannabis and hemp community to a picnic featuring an open mic for discussion and poetry readings about this transformational herb. Get together with other like-minded community and industry advocates for a good old-fashioned picnic and BBQ with a dash of self-expression. Pack up your picnic hamper or bring a dish to share with the group. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase. Musical instruments (acoustic) are welcome at this fun and free-flowing event!
