Hempfest works to stop illegal drug sales | LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor:
A recent article featured a man who claimed that he burglarized a residence in order to get money to attend Hempfest.
Hempfest has no charge for admission and requests donations only.
Seattle Hempfest works closely with the Seattle Police Department to assure a police presence at the festival and works to prevent unlawful sales of drugs at the event.
When Hempfest staff witness illegal drug sales in the park, the illegal goods are confiscated and ruined. For example, brownies are soaked in vinegar and put into the trash.
While we have no comment on the pending charges, everyone at Hempfest sympathizes with the burglary victims for their personal losses and hardships.
Executive Director, Seattle Hempfest
