While it was an intense process that not everyone was psyched about, I’m grateful to all the community leaders who gave such great input and feedback that helped shape and refine the Natural Medicine Health Act (NMHA) into the most progressive drug policy this country has ever seen. In particular, a shoutout to Kevin Matthews, Veronica Lightninghorse,

Tuesday, November 8th is Election Day. With all 435 seats of the House of Representatives and 35 of the 100 seats in the Senate being contested, this election has the potential to see many shakeups in our country’s leadership. Meaningful change comes as much from grassroots efforts as it does from leadership at the top. That’s why we believe that voting on down-ballot measures is so important.
Thanks for reading this blog posted on National Coming Out Day, Oct 11th. For some time, I’ve thought it would be a good idea to “come out” and celebrate that I’ve considered myself “about 25% girl” for quite a while.

WNBA superstar Brittney Griner’s February arrest at a Russian airport for carrying cannabis vape cartridges shocked the world. While this incident has clear geopolitical implications, her August conviction for drug possession and smuggling, and nine-year prison sentence that followed, was still heartbreaking. Throughout her ordeal, I have felt a profound sadness for Brittney and her family.
Recently a colleague forwarded a graphic that Decriminalize Nature’s leadership was spreading around listservs. This latest defamation campaign targets myself and River Styx co-directors Miriam Volat and Cody Swift using anti-semitic imagery and tropes as well as flat out lies and misinformation about us. The yellow stars in the images, which Jews were forced to wear in Nazi-occupied Europe,
In 2016, I was living on a commune in Willits, California. It was incredible living on 5,000 acres of field, forest, stream, and pond. The current generation of community members and land stewards—some who were born on the land and had raised their own children and grandchildren on the land—had deeply committed to sustainable, regenerative, and organic agriculture and holistic animal husbandry,
