Although Winter in California means sunny days and only a day or two of rain, Spring is about to begin her seasonal reign. That means it’s time to get out of the house and enjoy California for all she offers: Sunshine, the ocean, and legal cannabis. From women empowerment seminars to veteran gatherings to a local meet and greet with Redman, the week offers much in the way of interacting with the cannabis world. And we’ve got the hookup! Just remember: most events are for people at least 21-years-old, unless otherwise specified– and bring your medical recommendation just in case! Lastly, daylight savings starts this Sunday, so don’t forget to change your clocks an hour forward and adjust your schedule accordingly.
Have a question about how to grow your own canna-business? This is the seminar for you. This event grants people the freedom to ask anything they want regarding your new canna-business venture. Whether the company is in the idea phase or it’s already manifesting before your eyes, you should attend this event if any of these common issues are plaguing or causing a hurdle for your business: Market is flooded with product and competitors; building leases are a potential grenade to a company’s health; medical cannabis means being HIPAA compliant; ransomware & hacking are real business threats; taxes & reporting are no joke and carry hefty fines; your brand, website, packaging and social media presence matters. This event is designed to provide solutions. There will be sponsors and supporters, and the opportunity to network with other business owners.

Marijuana Madness: The True Story of Marijuana Prohibition in the Jazz Era
Step into the timeless atmosphere of Hollywood’s nightlife and travel back in time to 1937, when national marijuana prohibition was first written into American law. Marijuana Madness is a three-part series of live music and burlesque shows dedicated to telling the true story of cannabis prohibition and the musicians who were targeted. Once marijuana prohibition was written into law, a massive propaganda campaign followed and continued for decades to criminalize cannabis in the public eye. A key trend of this propaganda was how the substance affected moral decisions and encouraged debauchery. In true prohibition style, a separate lounge will be open where guests can elevate and enhance their experience with the Grassfed’s vape-bar and delectable health-conscious treats. The sponsors of the event include: Bloomfield (Flower); Trichohm (Live Rosin Extracts); VapeXhale, Firefly & Davinci (Vaping Accessories); To Whom It May, Medicine Box (Edibles); Pride Wellness (CBD Cocktails).
When: Wednesday, March 7 at 6:45 pm
Where: The Three Clubs: 1123 Vine St Los Angeles, CA 90038
Tickets: $30-$90 (click here for tickets)

Once Upon a Superhero Saturday Smoke Outs
Once Upon A Superhero will be beginning their weekly Saturday night Smoke Out events at the Hollywood Playhouse theatre in Los Angeles, California. Each week features new variations of live entertainment, music, comedy, a full 420 market, (cannabis vendors) food vendors and a midnight showing of Once Upon A Superhero. The movie is about a homeless wanderer named Solar Flare who proclaims to be a real superhero from the Sun. He was exiled from the sun to live on Earth without his superpowers for 189 days, making it hard for him to make friends and interact with people in an Earthling manner. From the personal discovery of why he was sent here (to save this planet from an apocalyptic solar flare), to the array of bizarre characters that misguide him, we follow the lost ‘superhero’ on what quickly becomes a downward spiral journey into the underbelly of Hollywood– a place he comes to realize is not worth saving.
