Perhaps one of the very few rock groups with their own "day," 311 announced on March 11 that members Nick Hexum and P-Nut would be hosting the 2016 HIGH TIMES U.S. Cannabis Cup Awards ceremony at the NOS Event Center in San Bernardino, CA on April 17.

The multi-platinum rock group and legendary cannabis connoisseurs, recently launched their highly-anticipated disposable vape pen – the Grassroots Uplifter™.

"We are so stoked to host the 2016 Cup," said vocalist Nick Hexum. "When we started 26 years ago, legalization was just a dream, but one that we never let go of. Today, it's great to see cannabis culture come out of the shadows and gain the legitimacy it deserves. I have seen, firsthand, medical marijuana help family members of mine when nothing else would. As a result, we have spent over two years developing the Uplifter, a one-of-a-kind vaporizer which is filled with pure CO2 oil by the finest independent oil extractors and producers available. The convergence of releasing this product, the country moving toward legalization, and us hosting the 2016 U.S. Cannabis Cup is going to make for one hell of a party in San Bernardino! Free the weed!"
