Idaho HOPE Fest

​​Boise, Idaho’s first hemp festival is coming to Julia Davis Park on September 25. According to organizers, the Idaho HOPE Fest is the first annual event being held in Boise to advocate for the end of the federal government’s war on cannabis consumers, and to promote the re-legalization of industrial hemp.

“We will feature live entertainment, guest speakers, vendors, and educational exhibits on cannabis and the politics, culture science and controversy surrounding it,” event organizers say on the HOPE Fest website.
Organizers said they have a number of goals for this year’s inaugural event:
• To collect signatures for the Idaho Medical Choice Act, a citizen’s initiative to legalize medical marijuana for Idaho’s seriously ill patients
• To promote the re-legalization of industrial hemp
• To educate the public on the growing cannabis industry, a legitimate market providing jobs and economic growth to states that have legalized its medical use
• To push for public discussions on the legalization of marijuana.

Willie Nelson could be sentenced to between six months and two years for being busted with six ounces of marijuana on Friday.

​Thanks to our fearless Border Patrol, music legend Willie Nelson, 77, could face up to two years in prison for his marijuana possession arrest, according to a criminal defense attorney in Austin.

The attorney told website TMZ that Willie’s arrest for six ounces of weed at a Border Patrol checkpoint could get the singer six months minimum and up to two years in prison.
However, ace L.A. pot attorney Bruce Margolin — who’s also director of the Los Angeles chapter of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws — said that Willie might dodge prison time if he could convince a jury that he just forgot the pot was on the bus.
Margolin believes Nelson should say the pot was California-grown, with California, of course, being the first of 15 states which have legalized the medicinal use of cannabis.
The bust went down at the Sierra Blanca, Texas checkpoint after Nelson’s tour bus pulled in Friday morning and a Border Patrol officer smelled marijuana through the vehicle’s open door.
