High NY: The Next Generation Of Cannabis Leaders


I came across a cool event today. It's an event geared towards the next generation of cannabis leaders, which is something that I always support. I was once a young activist, and it's only because of the efforts and mentoring from previous generations of activists that I've been able to navigate a gauntlet of chaos that is the life of an activist. We need to always be looking to fill the ranks with the next generation of activists, and I think this event is going to help with that. It makes me smile thinking of how many young people will go away from this event with a new found passion for drug reform. The legendary Betty Aldworth will be there, and you should be too! Below is more information about the event, via the event's Eventbrite page:
