The Cannabis Revolution™, empowered by the Tokes digital currency platform, will be one of the first projects in the world to combine the technological advances of the blockchain and digital tokens with the cultural shift associated with the marijuana legalization movement.
The Cannabis Revolution™ is being developed on the backbone of the marijuana legalization
movement, with initial operations slated for execution in Las Vegas, NV. The broad cultural shift
away from the demonization of marijuana towards social acceptance has taken place over the
past 20 years, with the adoption of legal medical marijuana legislation passing in California in
1996. Since then an additional 27 states plus the District of Columbia have all passed some
level of reform with respect to marijuana possession and consumption. As of November 2016,
eight states have outright legalized the recreational use of cannabis, including California,
Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Alaska, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada. It is our strong belief
that the wider cultural acceptance of marijuana coupled with the expected tax revenues
generated by its legal sale will encourage more states to pass favorable legislation.
Following the close of the Tokes Platform™ ICO we will begin the process of registration and
license procurement in the state of Nevada to operate as a fully legal and compliant medical
marijuana establishment (MME) business. Because recreational use has passed in this election
cycle, we will target licenses for legal participation in that field as well. Both founding members,
Michael Wagner and Gabriel Allred, are Las Vegas natives with extensive entrepreneurial
networks in the city. These personal connections will largely benefit the procurement of the
