Photos: Leafly kicks off West Coast ‘HighWay Tour’ to celebrate cannabis culture

The cannabis information website Leafly is on the road this summer to celebrate cannabis culture and the road to legalization.

The Leafly HighWay Tour is a three-month, five-state, 2,000-mile road trip to connect with cannabis consumers across the West Coast. The website’s team customized a classic 1968 Airstream trailer with fresh cannabis content, interactive activities, live music and more. And they’re taking the trailer to dispensaries, festivals and other community events throughout California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada and Arizona.

“More Americans support cannabis legalization than ever before, and the movement for reform shows no signs of slowing down.” said Kristin Kofmehl, event manager at Leafly. “We put together the Leafly HighWay Tour to celebrate the progress the cannabis legalization movement has made and the milestones still ahead.”

The tour kicked off July 1 at Universal Collective in Los Angeles. The Cannifornian caught up with the tour during its second day, with a stop at Live2Love dispensary in Santa Ana.

Here are photos from the event.
