Cannabis, Woodstock and the crowd that started it all align again
SMITHS FALLS, ON , Aug. 15, 2019 /CNW/ – On this day in 1969, hundreds of thousands of people descended onto Max Yasgur’s dairy farm in Catskills, NY. What began as a festival with an expected 50,000 attendees turned into one of the largest free concerts and top ten iconic moments in music history, with over 400,000 revelers celebrating peace and music together during a three-day historic event known as “Woodstock”.
Multi-generational stars were born with performances that will live on in cultural history. It was the beginning of a new counterculture of rebellion based on peace and love. As the music played on for 12 hours a day, the celebration turned into the coming out party for another cultural force: cannabis.
