After I broke my neck snowboarding in my early 20's I subsequently became addicted to opiates. During my recovery I decided to create The CPC. The CPC was the very first fully licensed, and fully tax paying medical dispensaries in Washington in 2008. The CPC was an award winning organization that generated over 10 million dollars in revenue over its tenure while creating community through outreach and educational programs. I am also a founding member of Washington's largest and longest standing cannabis trade organization, The Cannabis Alliance. Through this work I have lobbied at the state and federal levels, helped create and pass multiple pieces of legislation. I believe all life should be cherished and respected.
