HOLLYWOOD (November 6) The directors and stars of the independent gonzo comedy film High There will make a special appearance Saturday at the Hempcon 2015 Finals Festival in San Bernardino, California.

Wayne Darwen and Henry Goren, AKA Dave High and Roland Jointz, will lead the High There Street team Saturday afternoon, giving away free limited edition BRINKvision High There DVDs, posing with fans, and bringing attention to the case of Jon Peditto, a New Jersey photographer facing a mandatory 10- to 20-year prison term for cultivating 17 marijuana plants.


"High There is a wild, experimental, raw comedy," executive producer Sam Peters said this morning. "But one of its main plots concerns the incarceration of Hawaii cannabis activist Roger Christie. The publicity generated from the film helped lead to Christie's freedom. We hope we can do the same in the case of Jon Peditto.

“Peditto is the victim of antiquated drug laws in the politically-corrupt state of New Jersey,” Peters said. “He rejected plea deals because he wants to challenge them. How can we allow this travesty of justice? If the man lived in Oregon or Colorado, he’d be getting an award from the Better Business Bureau."

The three-day cannabis-themed Hempcon opened today at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino. It features live music, art, vendors, and carnival games. Darwen and Goren are scheduled to arrive mid-afternoon Saturday, Nov. 7, and will make appearances at various locations at the festival.

The pair made international headlines in October when they appeared at the Las Vegas Hempfest with comedy legend Tommy Chong. The ailing Chong was reported to have "passed the cannabis comedy torch" to Darwen, encouraging him to carry on the “smoking" comedy tradition pioneered decades ago by Chong and his partner, Cheech Marin.

The High There street team also loaned support last month to a rally of Falun Gong demonstrators in Santa Monica.

Filming of the High There sequel, Area 420, is scheduled to begin this month in Las Vegas.
