Located in Santa Cruz, California, the Wo/Men’s Alliance For Medical Marijuana works to educate the public on the benefits of medical marijuana. The group was founded in 1993, making it the oldest continuously operating medical marijuana collective, and is based on making sure that those who have serious health conditions have access to the benefits of medical marijuana as an alternative or an addition to regular prescription medications.
More than just a dispensary for allowing patients to get medical marijuana, the Wo/Men’s Alliance For Medical Marijuana also acts as a type of support group for those who are discriminated against, face intolerance, and even arrested. The collective holds a weekly meeting for all patients to attend and share their feelings, experiences, and thoughts, whether about medical cannabis or just about how they are feeling that week. This level of care and support is essential during the times of emotion when discovering a new illness or learning how to care for an existing one.
