Please give your opinion on marijuana prohibition laws in the United States.

They are relics from a time of mass misinformation and smear campaigns against cannabis brought upon by Harry J. Anslinger, William Randolph Hearst, and their constituents. Not only should cannabis be available to consenting adults everywhere, casualties of marijuana prohibition whos lives were forever ruined and freedoms lost deserve reparations, or at the very least, their freedom back. The schedule 1 categorization is an absolute joke, and in many ways, a travesty.

What experiences or skills do you have to promote the mission of San Diego NORML?

I've been a cannabis consumer for over 12 years, both as a patient from a TBI and as a recreational adult user. I used to work at a dispensary from 2009 to 2010. Currently, I work as an Administrative Assistant at a cannabis law firm called Wicker Law Group. I like to consider myself a jack of all trades; administrative duties, social media, community outreach, gathering signatures, organizing events, writing, whatever tasks I'd be given I'd be more than happy to complete.

What is the most awesome thing to do in San Diego?

Too many to name, but most notably the food (Mexican food in particular), the beach, Comic-Con, and all the good people. Great cannabis down here too.
