    The 710 Degree Cup is a Cannabis Awards and Festival. We are having the THIRD Annual 710 Degree Cup in Phoenix AZ.

    Our events are focused on patient appreciation and dispensary accountability. It is free for card-holding MMJ patients to attend. We have MMJ exhibitors, live music, local food, giveaways, FREE samples, contests, games, VIP lounge and much more!

    The THIRD installment of 710 Degree Cup will be secret shopping the greater Phoenix dispensaries for Concentrates! The secret shops will then be blindly tested by our sponsoring laboratory and broken down into FREE judge kits that will be randomly given out to AZ patients (who register on our website) to judge and report on the medication in a score card. (Also follow us on Social Media to Win!) Voluntary entries are also accepted and tested/judged the same way.

    Join us when we award The 710 Degree Cup for 17 Dispensary categories and 11 Patient categories. Uncovering who in Arizona has the best and worst medicine. Come have fun at a free medicated celebration while finding out where the best medication in Arizona is for MMJ Patients.

    This is just another thank you from the 710 Degree Cup; because without you there would be no MMJ!

    July 22nd: NORML Activist Strategy Summit

    For 2018, we’ve going to do a deep dive into grassroots organizing with the NORML Activist Strategy Summit. Attendees will be able to choose from a number of important areas of interest and engage in free-flowing, peer to peer strategizing on issues including running an effective chapter, communications strategy, social media and online activism, and more. Each topic area will be moderated by outstanding NORML activists from across the country paired with a member of the National staff and provide an outlet for individuals to share stories based on their advocacy experiences, exchange tips for best practices, and come up with new concepts to put into play to help push us closer to the end of prohibition.

    Topics include: Organizing political candidate forums, “big organizing” for lobby days, personal narrative development, and more.

    July 23rd: NORML Conference & Benefit Party

    On Monday, July 23rd we will host our formal conference programming. There will be panels, debates, and individual speakers covering a wide range of topics including: marijuana and its impact on the opioid crisis, how to engage in local reform efforts, NORML’s role in the 2018 midterms, marijuana reform as a social justice issue, and updates current 2018 ballot initiative efforts.

    In the evening, attendees will gather for a NORML benefit party to enjoy live entertainment and networking.

    July 24th: Congressional Lobby Day

    For the final day, NORML supporters will once again descend upon Congress to advocate for federal reforms. The reason we chose to hold the conference and lobby day at this point in the calendar was because this week represents the final week of legislative session before lawmakers go home for the August recess, when they will be explaining to voters why they should be reelected.

    Last year, we had activists from 24 different states attend over 150 scheduled meetings with Congressional offices and we aim to exceed that this year, with your help!
