"Free Cannabis For A Year" Contest Overview
Free Weed for a Year? YES!
This November, nine states will be voting to legalize it either for medicinal or recreational purposes. How can you help us “blaze the vote?” The answer is surprisingly simple; show up on Election Day (Tuesday, November 8th, 2016) and make your voice heard. Every vote counts and as if flexing your voting muscle wasn’t satisfying enough - we’re here to sweeten the pot - by giving away a year’s supply of cannabis! (Yes, you read that right and it isn’t the edible kicking in).
That’s right, buds. Cannabis.net is giving away a Cannabis for Year.
Start: October 10, 2016
End: April 20, 2017, 11:59pm EDT
While local and state laws vary from state to state, Cannabis.net will abide by all state and local laws regarding the winner’s location and state. Once the winner has been determined, all state and federal guidelines for contests and marijuana laws will be followed. Since states have different rules as far as quantity and time frames, we will follow all state laws pertaining to amounts and conditions. Hence, we can’t get you more cannabis than the state allows you to have over a certain period. All legal requirements will be followed by the winner and by Cannabis.net. Once the state residence of the winner is known, then the prize amount can be determined to abide by all statutes and laws.
Winner must be:
18 years of age as of March 31, 2017
Legal Resident of US or Canada, or a jurisdiction where medicinal or recreational cannabis use and sale is legal.
Resident of state with legal medical or recreational cannabis use permit

5. Sponsor will take the top 5 responses as gauged by social response and select the potential contest winner from all eligible entries received during the Entry Period on or around April 21, 2017. The potential winners will be notified by email and/or private message on the Cannabis.net WeedFeed. Odds of winning a prize depend on the number of eligible entries received.

Potential Prize Winners are subject to verification. Potential Grand Prize Winner will be required to fully complete, sign and timely return an unaltered Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability Release provided by Sponsor, and, where lawful, an unaltered Publicity Release within seven (7) days of prize notification. If a potential Prize Winner is found not to be eligible or not in compliance with these Official Rules, if attempted notification or the prize is returned as undeliverable, if any required documents are not returned within the required number of days, if a winner cannot be verified, or if a winner is otherwise unable or unwilling to accept and claim the prize as stated, then that prize may be forfeited. In the event that a potential Prize Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor reserves the right (in its sole and absolute discretion) to award the prize to an alternate winner. Alternate winner(s) will be notified via email and/or WeedFeed. Alternate winner must respond to winner notification within forty-eight (48) hours of the time notification is sent. If a potential alternate winner responds that she/he is prepared to accept the prize, she/he will be required to fully complete, sign and timely return an unaltered Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability Release provided by Sponsor, and, where lawful, an unaltered Publicity Release within three (3) days of the date Sponsor sends such Affidavit and Release. Failure by an alternate winner to respond within the forty-eight (48) hour time period and/or failure to sign and return an unaltered Affidavit of Eligibility/Liability Release within three (3) days may result in disqualification and forfeiture of any prize. Sponsor will provide the Prize Winners with a W-9 which winner must complete and return to Sponsor for tax reporting purposes or prize may be forfeited, in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Grand Prize Winner will be issued an IRS 1099 form. Receiving a prize is contingent upon compliance with these Official Rules as well as state laws where the winner resides.

One (1) year supply of Cannabis, consisting of a voucher issued to a local medical dispensary and/or recreational retailer in area of winner's residence, for an amount to be determined by the laws of the state where winner resides.
