On the final day of Hempfests’ silver anniversary, I had the privilege of spending time backstage, thanks to our friends at Cannabis Radio. I spoke to many distinguished advocates throughout backstage while staying out of the way from the talent, musical acts and comedians preparing for their performances. 

Here’s the Cannabis Wallet pictorial blog of behind the scenes while backstage at Hempfest. You’ll see Hempfest’s organizer, Vivian McPeak working hard to ensure its success:
