More Weed Less Greed
To say that yesterday was interesting would be an understatement. I decided to take the bus out of Beverly and headed to Boston Common for the 2022 Boston Freedom Rally organized by MassCann. This is the 33rd year Boston had a Cannabis rally. The last time I was at this annual event was sometime in the early 90s long before marijuana was legalized for recreational use in Massachusetts, and back then I remember it as "The Hempfest".
I wandered around aimlessly with one of my cameras capturing photos. Some people were not aware they were being photographed, while others were, and I enjoyed having conversations with so many different people. I found the event to be a beautiful mix of diversity and very multicultural, and that pleased me. Overall I felt that the majority of people I encountered were happy and it was interesting to randomly approach people and start talking to them, capturing a shot and handing them my business card.
I had fun just freely roaming around in the scent of weed everywhere, a cacophony of various music and loudspeakers that reminded me of a carnival fair atmosphere as vendors shouted their specials and wares. From the soldier's monument, all the way down the hill by the exit to the Boston Public Garden , a huge swath of vendor tents, and thousands of people smoking pot together. It was a gigantic party in the park full of stoners from all walks of life and I enjoyed many of the moments I experienced, maybe even made some connections with a few people.
