CannaVote is a political concept derived from the need to have more people involved in the voting process. Since it has been well documented the largest voting group is between the ages of 18 to 35, we thought it necessary to offer a reason for voting that resonates with that age group and but would still connect with all other ages as well. Despite a host of issues to engage this powerful group of voters, there is no other issue that will bring them to voting polls other than the total legalization of cannabis. With that said we are creating a call to action in support of the MORE Act.
Our CannaVote campaign directs all eligible voters to support our concept to vote locally, statewide and nationally for candidates who have shown a true interest or a proven track record to end the war on cannabis, remove it from the federal schedule 1 most dangerous drugs list, legalize it in every city, country and state in America, to free all those arrested for nonviolent marijuana related crimes and to immediately expunge their records. The MORE Act addresses all these concerns.
Through the National CannaVote Expo we plan to EDUCATE, EMPOWER, and CONNECT. There will be several booths where attendees can sign a petition to support the Act.
This expo will:
1. Educate voters on elected officials and presidential candidates voting record on cannabis and cannabis related issues.
2. Educate you on the laws, and bills needed in order to create a total legalized cannabis industry
3. Connect with successful business owners, investors, and physicians in the industry to answer your burning questions.
4. Stomp out the myths about cannabis.
This is an expo unlike any other, and you need to attend if you:
-Are looking to create a business that will offer freedom in your life
- Want to get in on a market in the beginning stages
-Know that this business is for you, but don't know where to start
-Have money to invest and are looking for companies to help expand
What you will experience:

Cannabis Digital Installations
Cannabis Art Gallery
And so much more…
It’s time to take a stand on laws that involve your community and your country. Start with CannaVote!
