The message of Hempstalk and cannabis advocates across this state still has not been heard
(PORTLAND, Ore.) -Portland’s annual Hempstalk Harvest Festival advocates decriminalization of cannabis for medicinal, industrial, and social use in Oregon and across the United States.
Founded in 2005 by The Hemp and Cannabis Foundation (THCF), the festival takes place on September 24- 25 in Waterfront Park, and features food vendors, live music, guest speakers and craft booths. This public event has always been free to attend.
Now it will sit idly alongside Cannabis, and the research stops there.
(SALEM, Ore.) -As you all will know, the United States Drug Enforcement Agency failed to re-schedule Cannabis at the Federal Level last month.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) -Paul Stanford was fired June 10th. BLINDSIDED, he would say. He received a certified letter from S.M.A.A.R.T., the corporation he owns a majority of, telling him he was out.
Instantly, Stanford’s share in his own company was reduced to as low as 3%. According to Stanford’s attorney, the issuance of an additional 23 million shares is a deliberate attempt, done in bad faith, to dilute Stanford’s shares in S.M.A.A.R.T.
