The American public’s perceptions about cannabis have been twisted since the 1930s. But thanks to medical marijuana and increased accessibility to studies about it, we’re getting closer..
420 is never about just getting high. No matter what any mainstream media source or your cousin on tokes too hard on Thanksgiving says. Its origin is about as smoky as the occasionally muddled mission behind the day. But with events like the National Cannabis Festival and Charm City SmokeFest on the horizon, we’re here..

Providing relief for us means continuing to share the positive impacts the medical cannabis industry is having within our community, and across the country. While we share images and videos leading up to our grand opening (both here on our website and on social media), we are also going to be sharing infographics like the..
We’ve spoken to medical professionals, dispensary owners, and reviewed the role that the many facets of the cannabis industry can play in creating a patient-centered engagement event that informs, educates, and empowers.
