Canna Tours presents – PLANTS NOT PILLS –
A public awareness concert to raise awareness regarding the unprecedented fentanyl epidemic that has plagued our community this past year. BC is in the midst of a public health emergency surrounding fentanyl and how it has taken over 900 lives across British Columbia, and 200 so far in the first two months of 2017. Canna Tours is currently collaborating and seeking sponsorship from like minded businesses to deliver a public awareness event that will speak to young adults on the dangers of opiate addiction. Along with music there will be a harm reduction element tied into the event. Canna Tours objective has always been to inform the public about the many medicinal benefits of cannabis.As a way to alleviate chronic pain and help with multiple other ailments, cannabis is a proven natural remedy that helps opiate addicts overcome addiction from prescription pills. Fentanyl is not just a big city problem, it has destroyed multiple lives in all corners across Canada and is is continuing to do so at an alarming rate. The vision behind the project is to get our message out to the younger generation by having them actually take notice and listen through personal stories from artists whose lyrics they will listen to and can relate with. We have enlisted a collection of some of Vancouver Islands most talented and respected hip hop artists perform at the event which is going to be held at the V-Lounge starting at 7pm on April.13th. Dockside Green, Filthy Clean Professionals, Paint The Town Red Kdeedz, Mistah Milz, JSTMKY, Konfidential, Rollie Fingers, Young Dre, Skinny-P, Death Camas, The Common Wealth.
Our goal is to get the message out to as many people as we can in other cities and towns and be able to do our tour in other parts of Canada. In order for us to do so we are looking to raise capital to help with expenses that will cover promotional, video production, venue, artist and travel costs through sponsorship opportunities. If you would like to get involved please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sharing our vision and posts through social media is also very valuable and appreciated. More needs to be done to educate Canada’s youth and help them not become susceptible to a substance that is preventable by sharing and educating about the risks and dangers surrounding this catastrophic crisis that is plaguing amazing country. #FuckFentanyl #PlantsNotPills #PlantsNotPillsTour ****Please Share and Like our FB page to stay up to date with future events****
