Local company backs non-profit organization focused on educating Florida seniors about benefits of medical marijuana.
Stuart, Fla., September 15, 2014—Fresh off their High Times Cannabis Cup win, Florida Buds is pleased to announce its support of The Silver Tour, an educational non-profit effort aimed at increasing Florida seniors understanding of the many benefits of medical marijuana.
Florida Buds, a Florida based company set to be the first medical marijuana dispensary and treatment center, donated $1,000.00 to support The Silver Tour, which is raising funds to launch a statewide radio campaign in advance of Election Day 2014. Florida voters will be deciding whether to pass Amendment 2 and amend the state’s constitution to legalize medical marijuana.
Participants in The Silver Tour learn about the history of marijuana and how it became outlawed. The seminars also educate individuals about the benefits of medical cannabis from physicians, nurses and patients; including legal specialists, filmmakers and more.
Founded by legendary pitchman and author of The Black Tuna Diaries, Robert Platshorn, The Silver Tour enlightens and empowers seniors with facts about the use of medical cannabis in treating a host of ailments—from MS and glaucoma to Parkinson’s disease and the side effects of cancer treatment and according to certain research, medical marijuana is safer and more effective than many of the narcotic drugs prescribed to seniors today.
“Florida Buds is proud to support Robert Platshorn and his work in educating the public about the marijuana industry through his non-profit organization, The Silver Tour. Robert has dedicated himself to spreading the knowledge of medical marijuana and the benefits it can provide everyone, including the growing baby boomer and senior population of Florida,” said David Shiner, Florida Buds founder. “At this time, Florida Buds is set on becoming Florida’s leading medical marijuana dispensary and treatment center after Amendment 2 passes in November.”
“We very much appreciate the support of Florida Buds in getting the word out to Florida seniors,” said Robert Platshorn. “A statewide radio campaign is the only way to get the word out about how Florida seniors and their families can benefit from the relief offered by medical cannabis, and why they should vote in favor of Amendment 2. “
