Cannabis Festival Held in Nay Aug Park

SCRANTON, Pa. -- Hundreds of people turned out on Sunday for the 4th annual Pennsylvania Cannabis Festival at Nay Aug Park.

Live music filled the grounds while cannabis supporters of all ages got their fill of food and shopping.

The event is held every year to bring awareness to aid in the legalization of marijuana.

"It brings everyone together so we can sign petitions or just show the state like look, there's this many people here that do use cannabis and have reasons for it," said Justin Peterson of New York.

The festival is the largest cannabis event held in Pennsylvania.

    The states that are taking in tax revenue from pot are never going to give that up and the others want that revenue source. So we can put away all the pros and cons because in the end its all about the money.

    Did any of you pro-pot people vote? Have you contacted you’re representative? I’m neither way on the issue- however I’m a HUGE states-rights supporter. And, I believe this is a state issue, not a federal issue. I’ve contacted Bareletta on the same, and he sent back some generic letter about federal law. I specifically said in my letter this issue is a states right issue (even if PA doesn’t want it for PA- each state should be allowed to decide for itself what they want- I’m looking at you CO, CA, WA, etc..) Again Barletta sent some party line crap generic letter about federal law back to me. I believe, states should decide what is right for them, and that federal government shouldn’t interfere what that. But again, Bareletta is a party voter- he doesn’t care what his constituents say. Time to vote this jerk out.

    I get everyone wants action NOW, but these political things take time.. especially in PA where big pharma and beer is KING. Just need to vote in an understanding reps.

      It was not a smoke festival, they were selling different types of food, and different types of clothes, T-shirts, sweat shirts, jackets, shoes, some items made out of hemp products. “NO FLYING HIGH IDIOTS HIGH IDIOTS WERE THERE.” And the police were there also. Tentative77562308, not everyone that uses it, is a flying high idiot, is everyone that has a beer or a drink a drunken alcoholic?

    Google , Harry Anslinger, and you will find out why weed was made a crime. And why it was put in the same category as heroin, which is the biggest misconception ever to be put into law. Decriminalize it ASAP.

      no doubt good things statistics show that cannabis does little to impair driving and may even make those under the influence more cautious. i cant say who is or is not an idiot tho as thge majority of individuals i’ve encountered are often well educated and extremely clear minded contrary to what one might expect but thus is life

    Weed should have never been banned. We can all blame “Reefer Madness” propaganda for the lie it is. The “old school” folks who we’re brainwashed generations ago are finally dying off allowing society to be more accepting.
