The main reason for the festival has little to do with marijuana itself. It's more about offering an awesome festival for students. It's part entertainment, but it's also about social justice. You may not know it's about marijuana unless you see some of the propaganda around at the booths.

All propaganda or popularization involves a putting of the complex into the simple, but such a move is instantly not constructive.
