Event Photography: San Diego ASA Prop 215 Party

The friendly folks at the San Diego chapter of Americans for Safe Access invited me to document their annual party to celebrate 19 years of patients’ legal access to medical marijuana since the passing of the California Compassionate Use Act, also known as Proposition 215. The party was at the Seedless Clothing compound in Ocean Beach on 2/15/15 and started at 2:15 :)

There were dogs, bros, hippies, hip hop fans, people both young and old, some with canes, some in wheelchairs… all mellow and peaceful, there for a good time. Discretion was key here – some people did not want to be photographed, so I politely moved on to the more carefree or brave souls who weren’t hiding. Activists, growers, dispensaries, and makers of tasty treats brought their best to sample and sell. The epicly long 8+ hour event featured the Nug Life Radio Show as well as several comedians and bands. The only person missing was Doug Benson!

Here are some of the day’s photos. Find the rest on my Facebook page.
