Last Friday March 13th, founder David Drake introduced the Smoke Reports platform to the public. Hundreds of people attended the Launch Event throughout the day at 111 Minna Art Gallery, listening to wonderful live music and learning about the cannabis community. The Smoke Reports team had a blast answering your questions and listening to your feedback. We are overjoyed that the community as a whole appreciates the importance of accurate and unbiased cannabis information.

If you were unable to make it to the Launch Event, do not worry! The Smoke Reports mission continues to blossom, and there will be many more opportunities to experience fun and cannabis at future events.

It’s a reggae party! Come on down! Meet your cannabis community!

The Staff of 111 Minna Gallery

From the Smoke Reports team, we want to thank the entire crew at 111 Minna Gallery. The venue was incredible and the environment could not have been more friendly and embracing. We could not have had such an outstanding event without the constant support of the staff and bartenders.

Smoke Reports and Cannabis Community Partners

Smoke Reports also wants to show a special appreciation to all of the partners who tabled informational booths and supplied the public with knowledge and freebies. Thanks to the Brownie Mary Democratic Club for providing information on cannabis legislation, legalization, and medical breakthroughs. The wonderful folks from Absolute Xtracts, Care By Design, and Project CBD put up an awesome display of products and educational pamphlets highlighting the benefits of high-grade medical cannabis extracts. Everyone loved Canna Magic‘s sample Pot Rocks (cannabis-free version) and their integration with the Smoke Reports Universal Cannabis Product Codes. The founders of Marvina (Bay Area gourmet cannabis delivery) highlighted their use of the Smoke Reports database to further inform users of their service.

Answering Questions about CBD

Shout-Out to the Bands

The Launch Event would not have been complete without the talented musicians who played throughout the day and into the evening. The Lil’ Smokies kicked things off with some energetic bluegrass. They finish up the California portion of their tour in North Lake Tahoe this evening, and then head to Montana and Idaho for a few more shows this month. We also recommend that any Oregon or Washington Smoke Reporters check out their shows in early April.

The Lil’ Smokies are amazing! Come enjoy live music now! 111 Minna Gallery! Til 11 pm! A video posted by Smoke Reports (@smokereports) on
