Los Angeles, California, April 20, 2021 – PotPunks, a new digital collector’s project from NFT, today announced the launch of 69 first-stage digital characters inspired by the diverse world of cannabis lovers and lawyers.

Angelos and Project Mission Green have deep connections in the entertainment and political worlds, and have been responsible for some of the most iconic drug reform bills and pardons of the past decade.
“Not only is PotPunks a great way to celebrate the cannabis community, but it also underscores our commitment to long-term advocacy and continuous innovation in how we communicate the importance of this mission,” said Angelos. “I’ve worked with the Obama, Trump, and Biden administrations, as well as entertainers like Snoop Dogg, Ty Dolla $ ign, and Alicia Keys to tackle the injustices of the drug ban. By partnering with PotPunks, our mission can address a whole New Realm of Activists.” who understand how blockchain, cryptocurrency and NFTs can also play an important role in supporting necessary reforms. “
The team launched the PotPunks project as a tribute to the original CryptoPunks in response to the burgeoning world of NFTs and the promise they hold for the world of cannabis. Every time a PotPunk is sold, a percentage of the proceeds are transferred to The Weldon Project via a smart contract on the Ethereum network to help support cannabis reform.
NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are digitally unique elements with proven ownership in the blockchain. Some uses of NFTs include digital art, collectibles, in-game items, and more.
The explosive popularity of NFTs has resulted in high profile celebrities, athletes, and investors like Tom Brady, Mark Cuban, and Snoop Dogg either starting their own NFTs or investing in space-focused companies.
PotPunks was created by a collective of creatives, developers, crypto diehards, NFT collectors and above all weed lovers. The team will be showcasing their first release from OG Punks at the MERRY JANE x Top Tree 4/20 event at the Notorious Estate in Hollywood Hills.
