If things go according to plan, the tour will then, over a three-month period, cover all of the lower 48 states.

|Thurlow Weed, CEO, No Excuses Entertainment: "We need a way to pull the cannabis community together as a whole across the nation"|
According to No Excuses CEO Thurlow Weed, this will be his second annual Cannabis Education Tour. Last year, Thurlow completed a 2-1/2 month, seven-state tour that started at the world's largest 4/20 rally in Denver, then headed to Washington state and Oregon to cover events like SONShine Organics' Washington Farmers Market.
But this tour, according to No Excuses, will be different, because they are also going to be collecting signatures of Americans that support cannabis legalization, petition-style, on the Cannabis Education Tour RV itself as it makes its way from state to state.
"We need a way to pull the cannabis community together as a whole across the nation," Thurlow said. "We need to leave not just a better planet for our children. We need to leave better children for our planet.
"What better way to do it than to rally and collect signatures in all of the lower 48 states that we can drive to?" Thurlow asked. "We understand that the RV is not a real petition, but what better way to show the cannabis community, and the world, that this is bigger than just a few states that want to legalize medical marijuana?"
"The best way to promote change is through education and the idea of the tour is to reach out to and interact with as many people as possible through the tour, and educate them about the benefits of this amazing plant," Thurlow said.
According to Weed, one of the ways this will be done is by streaming the tour live 24/7 on No Excuses Entertainment's iBAKE TV and iBAKE RADIO internet TV and radio stations. Tour participants will be blogging and chatting live on www.weedslinger.com as well. (WeedSlinger is the first company to sponsor the tour)
