The 'Freedom' Cannabis Cup.
Self-Hemployed attended the cup this year with the Daytripper crew. Like last year, our boat 'Daytripper' was transporting people from the center of Amsterdam to the Cannabis Cup Expo held at the 'Melkweg' and 'The Amuse'.
We started with cruising on Tuesday (which was the warmest day) and continued through Wednesday and Thursday (which was the coldest day of the three). With a Vaporizer sponsored by 'The Cannabis College' & Evert from 'The Verdamper', plenty to smoke, a little heater and some music the it all was a little more bearable.
We only had a few t-shirts around on the expo booth of Sagarmartha which were sold out 4 hours, Thnx to Tony & Ivana. You rock!. Unfortunately we did not have time to dropp off more of them due to the boat schedule. One of our crew was running scary, and way to old elevator up and down for the Cannabis Cup Expo visitors.
I spoke to one person, specifically, about our Self Hemployed HOODY sweaters. Still want your sweater?? Contact us through the website, we'll work something out!
Self Hemployed would like to thank; Steve Hagar & HighTimes, Matt, Stephen Gaskin & his lovely wife, Tony from Sagarmartha, Ravi & Sensi Seeds (For EVERYTHING), Soma (Still waiting for the sun! Peace), Arjan for the give away samples, The Cannabis College/ crew & Evert from 'The Verdamper', Joey, I owe you one (a punch that is), and every one else we forgot. Thanks for the Support. See you in Canada?!

Around 12.00 The Daytripper left from the greenhouse on it's way to the Melkweg. It was crisp out there but with some music, a vaporizer and some samples from Sensi Seeds and The Greenhouse many decided to take the 15 minute ride down there ...
Second captain and Hightimes crew on board of the daytripper back to the center.
The Self-Heployed was this year also partly responsible for setting up the Expo booth EVERY MORNING, and breaking it down EVERY EVENING.....
The expo booth was basically a big dissappointment for many local shop owners and other entered companies.. Also they had to pack and unpack their stand every day.
Unfortunately the High Times Cannabis Cup had to scale down the event due to the financial problems of last year (2003). Read more on cannabiscupwinners...
Also 'Captain Joint' and his lovely wife joined us on the trip through town. Thanks for the invitation to Psytopia!! We're getting ready for it over here. 2005 will be a year full of crazy happenings. Learn more about Psytopia here....
The Self Hemployed Crew and... CHIEFS!!!
THSeeds has upheld a great tradition of always rolling the biggest joint at the party. They useually go around for a good 20 to 30 minutes. Also check The Daytripper for more THSeeds spliffs and stars.
A night shot on the Amstel on our way from the Greenhouse to the Melkweg.
Hemp TV shooting on the Daytripper for the King Of Cannabis part III?? HEMP TV! We would LOVE to see some material
Back stage at the Cannabis Cup. It's getting kinda hectic. When you are looking for some, who supposivly is back stage at the Melkwege, you might find yourself wandering in circles... Then again it might just be the weed huh?? I swear that guy... The King Of Cannabis is wearing a crash helmet backstage though... Dude, am I tripping??
It was misty on the Prinsengracht on the way to the cup.
Little zoom action... Steve Hagar and The King Of Cannabis at the judges booths. Just checking...
Artery always rocks. Also they we're playing at the High Times Cannabis Cup 2004. On the right lead singer and guitar player Yanko.
Yes! We are NOT sponsored by Heineken. They're just good friends...
