As the legalization of medical marijuana continues to make headlines around the world, activist Ed Forchion, better known as NJ Weedman, continues to do his part to advance the agenda and increase the awareness of the plant he deems sacred. In anticipation of the upcoming Cypress Hill's Smokeout Festival, the hip hop's community celebration of all things marijuana with a two-day music fair and expo, featuring marijuana cult figures Cheech and Chong; and rappers/actors Redman and Method Man ("How High"), NJ Weedman is celebrating the rise of cannabis with yet another special event.
His "Hollywood Hills Hemp Mansion Party - the Lavish Libra Edition," will take place October 10 from 8:30 p.m to 4:00 a.m. in the hills of Hollywood, CA. Based on the response and success to his "Rooftop, Reefer, Reggae Leo Party" held last month, NJ Weedman is planning to mark each month with a special zodiac celebration.
NJ Weedman is also finishing an autobiographical book, "Public Enemy #420," the memoirs of a black marijuana activist, which he plans to release soon.
His shop is also perhaps the only dispensary to boast their own theme song and music video, "One Bud, Liberty Bell Temple." The video was filmed at the store and tributes his new found freedom of expression after so many years of suppression. "One Bud," directed by the talented up and coming filmmaker HAK and performed by Tay Nati can be view at .
