Dixie Brands, Inc. Announces the Launch of 'Pot and Prejudice': A Video Advocacy Series Uniting the Cannabis Community, Raising Funds for the Marijuana Policy Project

DENVER, April 1, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dixie Brands, Inc. (Dixie), a leader in emerging cannabinoid extraction and wellness platforms, plans to transform this 420 with a new video advocacy series to support the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP). Pot and Prejudice (Watch Now) is a three-part series designed to help educate people about the unintended negative consequences of the U.S. war on marijuana. From racial biases, to lost tax revenues to civil rights violations, Pot and Prejudice was designed to change the paradigm around 420, leveraging the visibility and engagement of 420 to move the dialogue from party, to social change and awareness via education, advocacy and driving donations to MPP.

"We couldn't be prouder, and more humbled, to support the Pot and Prejudice project in conjunction with MPP," said Tripp Keber, President and CEO of Dixie Brands, Inc. "To really kick it off, throughout the month of April in Colorado and California, Dixie is donating $15 to the Marijuana Policy Project for every case of Limited Edition 'Pot and Prejudice' Wildberry Lemonade Elixir sold. We are also encouraging customers, patients, competitors and partners alike, to join Dixie in spreading this important message of education and support for MPP. Together, we can help to bring an end to cannabis related prejudices by contributing to meaningful reform and changing the paradigm."

Dixie's Limited Edition 'Pot and Prejudice' Wildberry Lemonade features a newly designed bottle sleeve, a boosted berry flavor, 100mgs of THC and Dixie's patented child-resistant, dosing cap technology. The eye-catching limited edition design can be found in dispensaries throughout California and Colorado in April. However, consumers and patients can also join the 'Pot and Prejudice' movement simply by watching and sharing the video series. LINK TO SHARE: www.dixieelixirs.com/mpp
