URI SSDP Hosting 14th Annual Hempfest

The annual event takes place April 28 on the University of Rhode Island quadrangle.

The University of Rhode Island’s chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy will be hosting the 14th annual Hempfest music festival on Saturday, April 28 from 11 a.m. to midnight.

The purpose of this event is to raise awareness about the many uses of the hemp plant and the harmful effects of cannabis prohibition. This event is free and open to all members of the public.

The event will include live music provided by WRIU 90.3FM, a speaker from Law Enforcement against Prohibition, and  John Dvořák’s Traveling Hemp Museum. Vendors will also be selling food and other items.

Hempfest will take on the university’s quad, which is off of Upper College Road in Kingston. Those who are looking for more information on Hempfest or who are interested in vending should visit our website or contact us at urissdpnorml@gmail.com.

Students for Sensible Drug Policy is an international grassroots network of students who are concerned about the impact drug abuse has on our communities, but who also know that the War on Drugs is failing our generation and our society.
