The purpose of the Kaya Fest is to educate people to the many uses of the cannabis plant as well as to inspire and encourage positive public awareness especially since more and more states are approving the use of medical marijuana, such as Florida where it just became legal this past year. Kaya Fest is a cutting edge and positive event which promotes education, raising consciousness and spreading unity.

To this end Kaya Fest will also be hosting a special Free Symposium titled “Education Before Recreation.” It will feature a panel of experts who are on the forefront of education and regulation in the state of Florida.  The Symposium will be discussing the many uses of the Cannabis plant as well as the new Florida laws relating to it.  It will be held on Friday, April 21st from Noon to 4PM at the Miami History Museum, 101 West Flagler Street in Downtown Miami.  It is co-sponsored by NORML of Florida.
