It’s all about getting involved
If you want to see change, you have to make change. If you want your voice to be heard, you have to show up. I personally took the opportunity to become actively involved in advocacy and policy as it relates to cannabis, in particular, California’s Medical Cannabis Adult Use Regulations & Safety Act (MCAURSA) to protect patient’s rights and the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (Prop 64) to legalize recreational marijuana in the State of CA.
My current advocacy work extends to the cities and other localities in California to first help reverse old fears and propaganda-derived opinions and continue on to educate council members about the basic fundamentals of cannabis so they can enact fair, equitable and inclusive ordinances and policy for their community.
I served on the leadership team of the Women Grow Los Angeles chapter from early 2015 to 2017. I have successfully produced countless events to educate and empower new and existing cannabis businesses via a quality speaker series and high level business networking called Connecting Cannabis.
