I became active in the cannabis movement in 1995, as a volunteer with Cannabis Action Network. While there, I gathered signatures for prop. 215, registered voters and promoted the passage of this wonderful law by co-producing concerts and events. When the Compassionate Use Act was made law, I dove in head first and helped organize what would become Humboldt Cannabis Center, serving north-coast patients for five years. I’ve also co-founded several organizations dedicated to the implementation of California’s medicinal cannabis laws, including Medical Cannabis Association and Patients’ Health Defense. The M.C.A. is still in operation.
