SmokeOut Expo Mission Statement
The SmokeOut Medical Marijuana Expo is founded in the belief that the public is better served when citizens and public officials work cooperatively in order to successfully accomplish common goals.
Objective and Purpose
To educate the public on the myriad of potential benefits offered by the Cannabis plant, including the medicinal, industrial, agricultural, economic, environmental and other benefits and applications. In particular, SmokeOut Medical Marijuana Expo seeks to advance the cause of Cannabis policy reform through education, while advancing the public image of the Cannabis advocate or enthusiast through example.
A. Human rights. Equality. Freedom. We believe that adults in a free society deserve the right to make their own educated and informed choices about what they put into their own bodies. We believe that those important health choices should be made based upon truthful and accurate information. Of course SmokeOut is about cannabis – industrial hemp, medical marijuana and recreational use by otherwise law abiding, responsible adults – but since SmokeOut is organized in the spirit of a rally and demonstration against America’s laws criminalizing and imprisoning people who use cannabis, we see the SmokeOut being about freedom first, and the cannabis plant second.
A. Several things. SmokeOut Medical Marijuana Expo advocates the decriminalization of marijuana for responsible adults, legal access to medical marijuana for patients who could be benefited by cannabis, and legal domestic hemp production. By producing a world-class event, SmokeOut is demonstrating that cannabis enthusiasts can be as responsible, professional, and successful as anyone else. SmokeOut features extensive educational and informational content presented by some of the nation’s leading experts in the field of marijuana policy reform. We hope that all of this is contributing to the healthy, informed and energized local and national movement to change America’s pot laws.
A. No. SmokeOut is totally legal and protected by the United States Constitution under your right to freedom of assembly and freedom of speech. However, SmokeOut is not a “free zone.” All local, state and federal laws are in full effect at SmokeOut. SmokeOut is the worst place to attempt to buy or sell illegal substances in any form (I.e. Food). Please don’t do it.
A. No. Your ticket to the festival allows you entry to the expo and festival.
