Growing advocacy for industrial agricultural hemp could make understanding its history more important than ever. In recognition of the 5th Annual Hemp History Week, Seattle Hempfest presents a screening of the new, award-winning industrial hemp documentary Bringing it Home. By sharing the history, industries, and current legalization efforts of hemp production, the documentary offers analysis of the benefits of this "money-making crop," also exploring why it's illegal to grow it in the United States. Following the film, Joy Beckerman Maher (President of the WA Hemp Industries Association) will moderate a Q&A session about the current legal status of hemp cultivation in Washington. The event will also feature a hands-on hemp exhibit with touchable raw fibers, textiles, hempcrete, bioplastics, and seed products, guided by Beckerman Maher. The hands-on hemp exhibit begins at 6:15 pm and the film screening begins at 7:15 pm; go to Hempfest's website for information on the 9:30 pm after-party. Presented by: Hempfest. Tickets: $4 general admission. Doors open: 6:15 p.m. Learn more: Watch a trailer. READ MORE: http://www.townhallseattle.org/hempfest-presents-hemp-from-past-to-present/
