What do Sublime and Hempsters have in Common?

We both played at Seattle’s Columbia City Theater this weekend. Well, not technically. Our social event is tomorrow night at the theater. We just thought it’d be cool to catch the show after screening Hempsters: Plant the Seed at UW’s Kane Hall a few hours ago. Sublime still sounds great live, too!  (Note: right after I hit publish, I find out it’s not “really” Sublime because of legal reasons, but they’ve got surviving members, play all the songs we love, and they still sound great).

Early audience surveys indicate that no matter what your initial perception of hemp is, this film changes it for the better. That’s because Hemp is capable of touching most every aspect of civilization for the better. That’s the truthiness of it.  If you have an opinion about hemp, write a comment here on our blog.

We hope to see all the Portland State University community this coming Tuesday, the 19th, when we screen Hempsters again at Smith Memorial. See you there. And if you want us to tour in your town, just go to our Hempsters.ning.com site and DemandIt right there on the front page.

Hemp in the classroom, then and now

Happy New Year!  2010 will be a year known for Hemp awareness, action and change as we go on a university tour.  When I was in school, college kids didn’t get much of a chance to learn about hemp unless they were in a debate class where the topic was allowed.  If a professor was open to topics, students always chose to examine the issue of hemp, debating the laws and industrial benefits — and blatant mis-perceptions, faulty laws, and societal harms.

Today you don’t need to research hemp laws and industrial applications for 3 months.  Thanks to video anyone can go online and learn in minutes what used to take days or years.

Thanks for visiting and come back soon because we’re just getting started.  Become a “Hempster” by joining our network on Ning today.
