BudTrader Vows to Help Marijuana Policy Project Raise Funds
San Diego, CA – June 26, 2018 – BudTraderannounced via a Facebook post that the brand will donate a portion of proceeds from a special edition t-shirt release at next month’s San Diego marijuana news Comic-Con International to the Marijuana Policy Project. McLaughlin says his decision to help MPP with funding comes after hearing that the organization, which has been instrumental in reforming marijuana policy, is now struggling to get funding now that 30 states have achieved legalization.
“As soon as I learned that the Marijuana Policy Project needed help, I decided BudTrader had to do something,” says McLaughlin. “California, Washington, Colorado may be legal now, but the battle for cannabis legalization is far from over. There’s 20 states with cannabis prohibition still in place, and it’s still illegal at the federal level. It’s barely halftime, the games not over yet and we need the Marijuana Policy Project more, than ever to ensure we have full legalization in all 50 states.” BudTrader will be printing a run of limited-edition t-shirts to sell to their fans exclusively online and at BudTrader Nerd Headquarters Experience, the brand’s giant outdoor event at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, held July 19-22. A portion of all proceeds from t-shirt sales will be donated to the Marijuana Policy Project.
“At BudTrader, we always put our money where our mouth is and try to lead with our actions and walk the walk,” McLaughlin adds. “I hope our actions will inspire well capitalized public cannabis companies to give back and donate to the Marijuana Policy Project as well.”
