Open mind Harvest

Stopped through at Library Mall (yes, the same place President Obama was less than a week earlier)for the 40th annual Great Midwest Marijuana Harvest Festival for a little bit and caught some tunes, but mostly caught on to some good vibes from people who are working on a cause. Whether it is a cause you personally believe in or not, the times surrounding this festival are certainly peaceful high times. I had a chance to listen to some speakers discuss why medical marijuana is still needed to be taken more seriously, and others about how we could balance the budget with some swift smart moves based around this free growing source. Caught some of Nama Rupa‘s happy time good vibe music and the day was picture perfect to just lay down and look up.
