It’s just four weeks until HIGH TIMES heads to Jamaica for the first-ever Rastafari Rootzfest, which will host the HIGH TIMES 2015 Jamaican World Cannabis Cup in Negril on November 12th through 15th 2015.
We’re pleased to announce a stellar lineup of educational panels that deal with the challenges that must be met in order to be successful in the cannabis industry. Naturally, a number of panels will cover the art of growing the plant itself. For four days, both Americans and Jamaicans will join together, offering their expertise and wisdom in the quest to get Jamaica’s new cannabis economy off the ground.
Every night, top Jamaican musical artists will perform. Plus, twice a day during the four-day span of activities, beach yoga classes will get you primed to enjoy this super-duper event to its fullest. Remember, Rastafi Rootzfest is a comprehensive, educational happening that celebrates Rastafari ideology and culture.
