With the legalization of cannabis in NYS likely to happen in the next year, many people have legitimate concerns about the impact it is going to have on their own local community. The concerns are personal as well as regional. How does cannabis affect one on a personal level?  What are the risks and benefits of allowing cannabis sales in our local towns?  Why is cannabis seen as a “wellness” product?  How can it be used responsibly?  

Ann McLaughlin has been a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) for the last 23 years. In that time, she has seen the medical cannabis industry become a tool for addressing many conditions for which people seek alternative or complimentary remedies in an effort to feel better. Ann is a Certified Cannabis Caregiver through “Americans for Safe Access.”
