The origin of legal medical marijuana is deeply connected to the LGBTQ+ movement going back decades, as activists fought every step of the way for access to cannabis for HIV and AIDS patients in need. As we celebrate Pride festivals across California this month, we want to acknowledge the strength of our communities’ bond, celebrate how far we’ve come together, and commit to the work that still lies ahead.

Pride stands for promotion of self-affirmation, dignity, equal rights, a community, and a celebration of identity and diversity.

As a movement intrinsically linked with the LGBTQ community, the cannabis industry stands in support, and is proud to be involved.
