Hello. I hope all is well with everyone in our growing organization. Let me pause to thank all of you who have joined our ranks and to those of you who follow us on a social media feeds and those who come to our meetings.Â We wish you all well.
AsÂ a grass roots organization, the majority ofÂ our funding comes from donations and membershipÂ fees. We have kept our membership fees affordable and the benefits are a great value for all you receive. Â Where else could you join an organization for only $30/year that is doing such tremendous work in anti-stigma, education and advocacy? Â Â For our individual ($99/year) and business ($150/year) members, you get access to a full online course that covers numerous aspects of getting into the field.
You guys might know what I’m leading up to, and… you might not.Â We canÂ notÂ survive without your financial support that follows from joining as a member or attending our events. We can’tÂ continue to grow,Â help, and fight for our members without your help!
Look, if you’re a member already, great! Â IÂ thank you from the bottom of my heart, truly. Â Now we need you to spread the word, to your family, to your friends, and to anyone who will listen. We NEEDÂ more members, at every level. We NEED more members and volunteers. The Pennsylvania Cannabis Association is an integral part of a burgeoning Pennsylvania Medical Cannabis industry. Â We need to keep pace with this growth as well, and we need funding to do that.

I hope you’re inspired by what we are doing. Â We are. With our many benefits that include: advocacy efforts for state wide decriminalization, our efforts to attract and strike strategic alliances with organizations and companies who we feel would benefitÂ from such an alliance and benefit our organization as well. We now offer many educational videoâ€™s and webinars that you can watch and educate yourself with about the â€˜Cannabis Revolutionâ€™ whenever and wherever you like. Not to mention our Monthly Meet Ups in various locations across the state. We AREÂ attempting to â€˜Change the Storyâ€™, but we CANNOT do it without your help.
