With cannabis on the ballot for the 2016 election, the bus tour seeks to educate the public on personal freedom and host conversations about how to end to the Drug War.
Los Angeles, CA – In conjunction with the brand that will represent the heart of California farmers, Humboldt’s Finest, Spark The Conversation launches a multi-city, two-week education event and activation campaign set to inspire Californians to #bethechange, protect their basic liberties, and let their voices be heard as the California Cannabis Legalization Initiative, looms on the November 8th election ballot.
The tour kicks off with a private event hosted by jeweler Jacquie Aiche in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, October 19th at 4:20 pm. The Spark The Conversation bus will then travel the length of California and back concluding with an election viewing party on November 8th in San Francisco.
California’s legalization efforts are poised to bring the world’s largest cannabis market online and set a precedent for cannabis normalization efforts across the nation. With 90 million Americans supporting cannabis and drug reform, Spark The Conversation seeks to further empower the global community through media engagements, educational events, digital video and social media activations throughout the state and online.
