Cannabis Liberation Day 2017
The biggest cannabis and hemp event in The Netherlands!
The 9th Cannabis Liberation Day will take place on June 11th 2017, 2pm till 10pm. The event is free. On Cannabis Liberation Day we celebrate the international cannabis culture and show how much good this plant has to offer. Cannabis Liberation Day calls for tolerance and widespread use of hemp as durable resource and challenges the criminalization of the plant, the cannabis consumers, coffeeshops and cultivators.
Cannabis Liberation Day will again be held at Flevopark, the greenest park of Amsterdam. The park is easily accessible by public transportation. Please treat the park with respect, use the bins and toilets and stay on the grass and pathways.
In addition to the stage program with artists, speakers and DJs from home and abroad there is a big Hemp Market, a Cannabis University (with debates masterclasses and workshops), a Vape Lounge and a mouth watering food and drinks area.
At the Hemp Market, cannabis- and hemp related organisations and companies will present themselves and their -legal- products. Non-commercial organisation do not have to pay rent for stands. If you are interested in a booth, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Since 1999, in the first week of May protests and festivals are organised worldwide in support of legalizing cannabis, under the name Global Marijuana March. Because there were none of these activities in Holland, in 2009 VOC Nederland decided to organise Cannabis Liberation Day
