***** MEDIA RELEASE ***** FREE CANNABIS COMING BACK TO SYDNEY WITH PICNIC ALSO HITTING PERTH FOR FIRST TIME THIS WEEKEND
With the weather warming, the sun shining longer, and spring in the air, even cannabis users are getting off the couch with hundreds expected to attend Free Cannabis picnics in Sydney and Perth over the coming weeks following a long Winter hibernation.
Sunday, October 2 is the return date for Sydney’s one-of-a-kind Free Cannabis picnics, with hundreds yet again expected at Camperdown’s Victoria Park near the CBD to taste for themselves what is a truly unique experience in the city.
The last picnic in Sydney held in June resulted in the biggest turnout yet with about 400 people enjoying music from bands King Colour, The Murray Greys, The Shrews and hip hop crew BKE, and regaee singer Jah Tung, as well as enjoying the stoner food served up by Newtown cafe D’Munchies which set up a cooking tent at the park especially for the day.
Perth’s picnic – its first ever – will take place on Sunday, November 12 from 11.3oam onwards. Interest in the city’s inaugural free cannabis picnic is high (yes, high), with thousands indicating their willingness to go on a Facebook page set up for the event.
Similar picnics have already been held three times in Sydney this year, with the events receiving widespread positive coverage across major media outlets – with the Sunday Telegraph, News.com.au, Daily Mail, The Huffington Post, Yahoo7, Pedestrian.tv and the Sydney Criminal Lawyers website all reporting on and publicising the events over the past six months.
The first Free Cannabis picnic held in Queensland in June also saw major television network Channel Seven coming along for the day on the Gold Coast and filing a very positive story for the evening news.
On October 2, the crowds in Sydney can again expect joint rolling competitions, stand-up comedy and some great music – this time courtesy of the likes of Space Boys, Brain Zaps, Bad Tooth and God’s Broccoli, as well as the Free Cannabis DJs, including legendary DJ Smokin’ Joe Mekheal, who will be hitting the decks during the day to help amp up the crowds.
Cult comic hero Johnny Boxer from the #FatPizza tv show and movies will also be around to help with the vibes.
