Join The Anniversary Celebration of the Fastest-Growing
Organization In The Cannabis Industry

June 13, 2016 (Santa Rosa, CA) – It has been 20 years since California pioneered the nation in legalizing medical cannabis with Prop 215. Now California makes up 49 percent of the nation’s robust cannabis economy. California’s cannabis scene has exploded like the Wild West and there’s one more reason to celebrate. Sonoma County’s Canna-enthusiasts are invited to join Women Grow to mark its 1-year Anniversary with a celebration and award ceremony to honor ‘The Godmother of Cannabis’, Lynnette Shaw.

Women Grow is a national organization that seeks to connect and empower women in the legal cannabis industry and the group’s Sonoma County Chapter is excited to share their achievements. In the past year, the Chapter brought in 23 industry leader speakers and panelists, of whom 21 were women and 2 were men. Speakers have included: Amanda Reiman, Manager of Marijuana Law and Policy at Drug Policy Alliance, Samantha Miller, President and Chief Scientist at Pure Analytics, Ellen Komp, Deputy Director at California NORML and Jazmin Hupp Co-Founder/CEO of Women Grow.

“The cannabis industry’s future is held in our hands,” says Chapter Founder and Chairwoman, Ilana ‘Sugar’ Laytart. “We are currently writing the history and HER-story books and this event’s celebration is to acknowledge our commitment and perseverance in this movement.”

The celebration takes place on Thursday, July 7, from 6pm to 10pm at Annie O’s Music Hall in downtown Santa Rosa. “Celebration Attire” is suggested. Early-bird tickets cost $25 and can be purchased through Universe.com.
