Story

In 2018 we hope to hold a groundbreaking event to help educate the UK citizens about Cannabis and it's uses and benefits.

We hope to get Experts, MPs, Campaigners, and patients together to talk with one another about how we can keep the campaign moving forwards.

Some possible ideas for the event are below, please note these are ideas and nothing is set in stone yet. I have started some planning but at this stage the hardest part will be securing a location. This is what the crowdfund is primarily for.

• Invite MPs to talk: Crispin Blunt, Norman Lamb, Baroness Molly Meacher, As many other supporters as possible
• Have talks from experts such as Prof. Mike Barnes and perhaps some universities where cannabinoids have been studied, other relevant experts, and perhaps someone from GW Pharma to tell us more about Sativex and what it’s current uses are, and maybe have Q&A with the experts?
• Speech from CLEAR President, and also from CEO
• Stalls educating about the various uses for cannabis on other levels such as environmentally renewable energy (brickettes for example), building materials, farming, rope etc etc etc.
• CLEAR Staff and Member awards
• Party/Gathering

Further planning on the below items will be carried out as we gather support for this event.

Some of the things we must take into consideration:
Location – Indoors preferable. Central location such as London or another major city.
Staff/Volunteers
Vendors/Information booths – invite universities to present their findings, serious cannabis merchandise (not bongs etc!) such as cooking oils, flour, fuel, cosmetics, clothing, and many other uses that I am sure others have thought of.
Technical Support
Food & Drink
Music/Entertainment

This really could be a groundbreaking event!
We WILL be taken seriously, and that is VITAL in our fight for cannabis law reform.

    I hope this is a success and you can get the UK into the 21st century. Get hard facts so that Cannabis can consider for medical reasons with an understanding of its benefits.
