Exciting news come out of California yesterday. Spark the Conversation – a nonprofit cannabis organization dedicated to changing the social stigma around cannabis consumption – leaves for a two-week California-length bus tour.
With California’s Proposition 64 on the ballot in November, the tour comes at an opportune time to discuss personal liberties and cannabis.
The bus will leave Los Angeles on October 19, run the length of California and back, and then conclude in San Francisco for an election viewing party on November 8.

The tour kicks off with a #HighMyNameIs video campaign where anyone can upload their feelings to social media on way more that just cannabis. Any topics related to personal freedom, drug war, civil liberties, non-violent imprisonment and social injustice are encouraged.
The Spark the Conversation Facebook page will then aggregate any submissions. The videos will range from 15 to 60 seconds and may include photo or written messages.
Spark the Conversation attempts to make it easy for all people to amplify their message of personal freedom and participate in cannabis reform.
