SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA - Slated to host the 2016 U.S. Cannabis Cup are Nick Hexum and P-Nut, band members of the multi-platinum rock group and legendary cannabis connoisseurs 311. The band has recently launched their highly anticipated disposable vape pen – the Grassroots Uplifter™.
Nick Hexum said, "We are so stoked to host the 2016 Cup. When we started 26 years ago legalization was just a dream, but one that we never let go of. Today, it's great to see cannabis culture come out of the shadows and gain the legitimacy we deserve. I have seen, first hand, medical marijuana help family members of mine when nothing else would. As a result, we have spent over two years developing the Uplifter, a one-of-a-kind vaporizer which is filled with pure CO2 oil by the finest independent oil extractors and producers available. The convergence of releasing this product, the country moving toward legalization, and us hosting the national Cannabis Cup is going to make for one hell of a party in San Bernardino! Free the weed!"
