The Boston Freedom Rally is an annual cannabis reform rally, hosted on the third Saturday in September, by Mass Cann/NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws). The rally started back in 1989 and has developed massively over the years of continued support by activists of every demographic. Although the Boston Freedom Rally has been able to survive the past 30 years, it has not been an easy ride! Even with society’s outlook on cannabis changing alongside politician’s perspective’s, there are still many powerful people and organizations out there trying everything in their power to shut down this historic event.
Admittedly, the rally has undergone issues with trash following the end of the rally, however, this problem has been addressed by Mass Cann/NORML and all the vendors who sign up to support and sell their products within the rally’s perimeter. Organizations such as Beantown Greentown™ and many individual volunteers have taken it upon themselves to step up and donate their time and energy to lead the cleanup, during and following the rally. Still the rally will face scrutiny from those who want nothing more than to see this timely movement collapse. I am happy to say, they’re going to have to try a hell of a lot harder!
Having attended the Boston Freedom Rally consistently since 2009, I have personally seen the development of this unbelievable movement. Over the years, many things have changed but one thing still stands the same: We will not stop rallying behind this wonderful plant, no matter how hard these corrupted politicians and organizations push back!
2019 was a very special year for the Venture Greens Nutrition team! As this was our first chance to step on to the vending side of the tables and tents! It has been a long-time dream of mine, to be able to take part in the historic event as a business owner doing my part to progress the movement. Not only was this a first for us, it was a successful first, to say the least!
We met some unbelievable people, got our products into the right hands and had the opportunity to educate people on CBD and what we do! Connecting with our customers firsthand is massively important to us. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to make a living by making other peoples lives more enjoyable. The Boston Freedom Rally has provided an incredible platform for people to grow from and we are proud to be a part of it.
Thank you anyone and everyone who stopped by our booth to chat and learn a thing or two about our products and CBD. It was an incredible experience meeting people from all over the world, interested in CBD.
Needless to say we are already planning for next year! Keep your eyes open in 2020, we’ll be stepping it up!
