“Spark the Conversation” is a concept for a “grass” roots education and awareness campaign though social media, PSA’s, celebrity ambassadors, cultural messaging, podcasts, and round table discussions. The focus will be on brining the truth to the forefront about the drug war in hopes to encourage people to take action and join the movement.
Spark The Conversation Campaign & The Culture High (Movie Release Oct 17th)
“The Culture High” is the riveting story that tears into the very fibre of modern day marijuana prohibition to reveal the truth behind the arguments and motives governing both those who support and those who oppose the existing pot laws.

When Complex founder Marc Ecko received a call from an old friend in search of a conversation, he had no choice but to oblige. That old friend is Bad Boy Records founder and CEO Sean “Diddy” Combs, and the man behind Revolt, his first cable network, had plenty he wanted to talk about. In the first part of their conversation, Diddy talked about media in 2014 and the Revolt Music Conference, which is happening in Miami, Oct. 16—19.
