San Diego, CA – June 26, 2018 – BudTrade announced via Facebook post that the brand will donate a portion of the proceeds from a special edition t-shirt launch at next month’s San Diego Comic-Con International to Marijuana Policy Project. McLaughlin says his decision to help MPP with funding comes after hearing that the organization, which has been instrumental in marijuana policy reform, is now fighting for funding now that 30 states have achieved legalization.
“As soon as I knew that the Marijuana Policy Project needed help, I decided that 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 are 20 states with cannabis prohibition still in effect, and it’s still illegal at the federal level. It’s barely halftime, games They are not done yet and we need the Marijuana Policy Project more than ever to make sure we have full legalization in all 50 states. ” BudTrader will print a series of limited-edition T-shirts to sell to fans exclusively online and at BudTrader Nerd Headquarters Experience, the brand’s giant outdoor event at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, which runs from 19-22. of July. A portion of all proceeds from the sale of t-shirts 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 path,” adds McLaughlin. “I hope our actions inspire well-capitalized public cannabis companies to give back and donate to the Marijuana Policy Project as well.”
The “Dude, where is my yacht?” The BudTrader Limited Edition T-shirts (available at https://budtraderstore.com) are a call to Comic-Con 2017, where BudTrader was controversially kicked out after just two days at the convention. The brand’s superyacht disappeared from 5th Avenue Landing overnight on the last day of San Diego Comic-Con. It’s still unclear who got BudTrader kicked out of Comic-Con last year, but there are plenty of conspiracy theories online ranging from event organizers to large media conglomerates and even a billionaire crusader against cannabis.
BudTrader’s presence at Comic Con in 2017 was covered by publications such as High Times, Times of San Diego, The San Diego Union Tribune, and more than 400 other media outlets.
