Last weekend we attended a Cannabis awareness BBQ held in the Basingstoke Lime Pits.
This event was a chance for vendors and cannabis consumers to come together to celebrate the benefits of this wonderful plant, and saw people attend from across the country.
Around 30 stalls were in attendance, featuring everything from head shop supplies to food, and plenty of cannabis awareness information.
Held by Basingstoke Dank, Basingstoke Cannabis Club and more, the Basingstoke Canna collab BBQ protest packed the Lime Pits with stalls and all-weather marquees – which was perfect as it decided to rain throughout the day.
We didn’t let the weather stop us, however, with more and more guests arriving throughout the day to join the celebrations.
Towards the end of the afternoon, they held medical talks via the UPA tent, and UKCSC, Tottenham Compassion Club and UPA all gave talks to attendees.
There was a raffle held at 4:20 with some amazing prizes up for grabs including items from all of the attending vendors.
Overall we had a great day. I remember last year’s event very well, and this year saw even more people descend on Basingstoke for the day, showing the power of the cannabis community in the local area and beyond.
The police attended briefly but were not there to cause trouble. No arrests were made and in terms of the events we have attended in the South this year, this was one of the more relaxed, with edibles chefs able to showcase lots of delicious goodies!
I look forward to more Basingstoke events in the future.
