Hemp Olympics

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Nim­bin, on the New South Wales north coast, has a rep­u­ta­tion for grow­ing and sell­ing mar­i­juana, which at­tracts lots of old hip­pies, new age hip­pies and peo­ple who just en­joy the odd toke. The Hemp Olympics are held here as part of the an­nual Mardi Grass Fes­ti­val. Events in­clude joint-rolling for both speed and artis­tic, bong throw­ing and for the more phys­i­cally- minded, a grow­ers’ iron­per­son com­pe­ti­tion, which re­quires par­tic­i­pants to crawl through lan­tana tun­nels drag­ging large bags of fer­tiliser. We doubt many peo­ple re­mem­ber the events.
