We're thrilled to announce that voting for the first annual Canadian Cannabis Awards opens today! You can vote for your favourite strains, LPs, dispensaries, head shops, medical clinics, and social media accounts. And we've created a special award for the 2014 Canadian Cannabis Crusader (more on this in a future post).
The purpose of the Canadian Cannabis Awards is to highlight, unite, and celebrate the exceptional in Canada's rapidly evolving medical marijuana industry. As you're aware, we live in interesting times. We have different programs running simultaneously, and patients accessing medical marijuana in a variety of ways. Because of this, the community often feels more fragmented than it should.
So we want to provide an opportunity for all the industry's participants to engage in something meaningful yet fun. Something that gives people a chance to both share and listen. That's why we want YOU to tell us who you think is doing things right (and by extension, who isn't). The awards are meant to give people a voice. It's what we're trying to do at Lift: give you a platform to be heard. And to hear others. And to talk. And to (hopefully) learn. We learn from you every day, and it's awesome.
We hope the awards will help raise awareness about Canada's medical marijuana industry and how - despite its flaws and fragmentation - there are individuals and businesses doing things exceptionally well. Let's celebrate and get behind them; let's give them the recognition and support they deserve and show the global medical marijuana community that Canadians are leading the way.
