The Alliance and PRIDE

Alliance Board Attends Everett Pride Event

Board President, Jason Lammers along with Executive Director, Caitlein Ryan and board members Keith Boyce and Shawn DeNae had great conversations during the Everett Pride event at Forrest Park in June.

Community events provide an opportunity for our board to hear from the public. Their stories of how cannabis has helped them or a loved one are frequent, heartfelt and powerful. Telling our cannabis stories is an impactful way to help better understand the plethora of beneficial outcomes of responsible cannabis use.

A re-occurring topic of education is commonly around growing cannabis at home. Citizens overwhelmingly tend to believe that legalizing cannabis meant their home garden activities are safe from scrutiny.  The Cannabis Alliance takes every opportunity to educate those home gardeners that they are indeed at risk. The laws addressing home grow make it an illegal activity in WA state. The only legal way to grow non-commercially is to be a registered patient with the Department of Health.

The Cannabis Alliance has committed to attend public events to continue educating the public about the laws, rules and benefits surrounding cannabis.

Happy Independence Day!
