Hemp Embassy

Byron Bay & Northern NSW

Part shop, part stronghold for minor political group the Hemp Party, this colourful place raises consciousness about impending marijuana legalisation, and sells all the paraphernalia you’ll need to attract police attention as well as now legal edible hemp products. It organises the MardiGrass festival (www.nimbinmardigrass.com) in May. An attached cafe-bar sells teas, smoothies and snacks.
