Dennis Kucinich to Speak at 'Hempfest' in Seattle


Pitted-olive enthusiast Dennis! Kucinich will join other illustrious speakers like Wayward Bill of the United States Marijuana Party, folks from "Moms for Marijuana" and "Gramma's for Ganja," and "Stinkbud" from High Times Magazine at Seattle's "Hempfest" this weekend.

The PD reports Seattle mayor Mike McGinn will also be there, but he's the least credible of the group.

As Dennis! has undoubtedly reminded you, the GOP might be targeting his district in the upcoming redistricting that will leave Ohio with two fewer congressional seats. But redistricting is bo-ring, and Washington state is adding a congressional seat, and Dennis! likes to flirt. So, off he will go again to the west coast to talk about marijuana.

(Credit where credit is due for comprehensive research by the PD: they cited crowd estimates via The Weed Blog.)

Dennis!, it should be noted, has said that he's never smoked marijuana, but that he's in favor of decriminalizing it. So, no, Dennis! isn't high when he says all those crazy things.
