Annually the winners get their Oscars and, this year, what the so-called losers got were the swag bags, which deserved their own award – Most Opulent Marketing Ploy. Inside the swag bags there were, among other things, unlimited Audi car rentals, a $900 toilet paper dispenser, personalized M&Ms, free stays at hotels in Italy, a 10-day, first-class trip to Israel, and many other luxurious treats which have a value of record-breaking $200,000-per-bag value.
There was one gift though, that caught everyone’s attention, and what was most interesting, was the Haze Dual V3 Vaporizer, which could be bought for $249.99. The vape is somehow unusual because of its great flexibility, and as such it works with e-liquids, dried herbal blends, and wax and thick concentrates.
2016 is the second year that the swag bags have included this vaporizer together with other gadgets.
It must be admitted that the charity component is stimulating and fresh in every way.
In conclusion, no matter the opinion about the ultra-posh gift bags – it is what marketers and brands do, getting their products in front of celebrities, – one thing must not be left unsaid: The pro-cannabis items in those bags are a huge win for the marijuana movement!
