The 13th annual Great Midwest Marijuana Harvest Festival took place this weekend on Library Mall, and it was great time if you like getting high. Head shops from around all around the midwest came to sell their stock of goodies.

In between all of the attendees and jam bands that really like weed, Libertarian political hopefuls Robert Burke and Jordan Hanson also attended to hand out Libertarian Presidential Party Nominee Gary Johnson stickers and discuss their own platforms. In case you missed it, here are photos of some of the unique aspects of the Harvest Festival.

“Nobody told Fred Flintstone he couldn’t smoke [weed]. It’s natural law,” Burke said.
