The Cannabis Classic announced today that “Radical” Russ Belville will host the 1st Annual Cannabis Classic Awards, sponsored by Cheeky Monkey, live at 420 W. 3rd Avenue in Anchorage, Saturday, May 20 from 7:00-10:00 PM. The awards show will celebrate and recognize some of Alaska’s leading cannabis entrepreneurs and professionals. The Cannabis Classic is presented by Pakalolo Supply Co.
Belville, who is based out of Portland, Oregon, hosts a daily radio program titled “The Marijuana Agenda with Russ Belville.” He’s an active marijuana advocate and a staunch supporter of marijuana liberalization. He’s featured in highly publicized newspapers and magazines such SFWeekly and High Times as a freelance writer and thought-leader.
“We are thrilled to have Russ host this year’s Cannabis Classic Awards,” said Kendra Wray, event organizer. “His spirit and passion for cannabis makes him the perfect host, and we can’t wait to see the energy he brings to the awards show.
“Russ is a professional, and we are excited to be working with a witty and charismatic host who is a cannabis supporter as well as a believer in what we do,” said Mrs. Wray.
Officially, this marks the first year of the Cannabis Classic Industry Awards. In the past, the event only recognized the state’s top growers and breeders. In addition to the grower’s awards, this year’s event will also present industry awards, such as best cannabis reporter, best garden supply store, best glass shop, best retail product, best packaging & design, best bud tender, and cannabis store of the year.
“I’m excited to return to Anchorage for my third time to host the Cannabis Classic Awards. The cannabis community in Alaska is exceptionally welcoming and the growers there have really stepped it up in terms of quality and diversity of flower. Plus, it’s always interesting to conclude a wild night of celebration and walk outside to sunshine at 11pm.”
