This week we speak with Sara Payan, a stage three cancer survivor who utilized cannabis in important ways during her successful battle. Sara is now the vice chair of the San Francisco State Legalization Task Force and the Director of Education at the Apothecarium in San Francisco, a health-care driven dispensary that focuses on cannabis remedies from migraines to a slew of severe diseases. Sara’s knowledge and language and ability to educate is invaluable for a patient looking for help in states that don’t recognize cannabis as medicine.
We also continue our discussion with Stephanie Landa and learn how her charity Freedom Grow is helping inmates of nonviolent cannabis crimes pay for everyday items like toothbrushes and phone calls. Stephanie is eager to help those in need, and provides her contact information.
