Since Weedmaps launched its campaign to legalize marijuana in the Empire State, New Yorkers have rallied behind the cause, showing their support and asking us how they can get involved with this cause. While anyone can sign up for Team Weedmaps, there's now a more direct, interactive way for you New Yorkers to meet your fellow cannabis enthusiasts and unite together for our common cause.
A riff off of Weedmaps' #HighNY hashtag and a sweet coincidence, some local, passionate New Yorkers will launch their HighNY Meet-up series tonight in New York. The first of many New York events that will promote cannabis and show New Yorkers how they can get involved, there will be free drinks and food served courtesy of Weedmaps!
Here are the full details from the HighNY team:
Hello HighNY! Our first Meetup will be at Overlook, located on 44th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. We have the upstairs to ourselves and there will be FREE food and drinks thanks to our friends at Weedmaps! Prepare to have fun and meet other HighNY supporters!
Our featured speaker will be Adam Scavone, the Co-Founder and Director of the New York Cannabis Alliance. Join us as Adam talks about his vision for a health-centered approach to cannabis policy in New York State. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
You can RSVP to the event right here. And if you attend the event, use the hashtags #HighNYMeetup and #HighNY to show your taking action to help us progress. This event will hopefully be the first of many informative New York-marijuana meet-up in the future.
Designed to enhance New Yorkers' knowledge on medical marijuana's scope and also bring together the most passionate marijuana smokers in the city together to make sure their cause continues to gain momentum.
