Back in 2010 I started a company Hydroswag Entertainment, the goal was to provide a platform for independent artists to have a professional stage to showcase their talent. For 3 long years Hydroswag ran strong and many artists benefited from the company. Hydroswag bridged the gap between music and media, "cross-breeding" the two. With Hydroswag I used my marketing and media skills to introduce musicians to mainstream social networking and celebrities. However in early 2013, I lost my love for the independent music scene and closed Hydroswag. While I ceased to put on Hydroswag events, I maintained close relationships with many of the artists and celebrities of the past and after putting on 3 years of successful events I have chosen to use my business experience in a new direction. The Cannabis and Hemp Association was born! I have been self-medicating myself for SAD (seasonal affective disorder) for the last 16 years with cannabis and in doing so have learned much about the plant and it's cousin hemp. In early 2014 Washington and Colorado legalized cannabis for recreational use and it gave me hope that federal legislation to repeal cannabis as a schedule 1 drug would be lifted. The CHA was created by me to influence the world to become more astute in all matters cannabis and hemp. For many years I was aware of the benefits both nutritionally and economically that cannabis can provide but I have never been so hopeful that legalization would actually happen. Recently I learned that Quinnipiac University conducted a study this year that 9 out of 10 New Yorkers are in favor in clinical cannabis (medical marijuana is a term I sparsely use as marijuana was the nickname used to sully the medicinal reputation of cannabis.)
The CHA was formed by me to rekindle my expertise in event coordination, marketing, and sales in order to provide a community of cannabis enthusiasts to be educated, network, and and entertained by all thing related to cannabis. This organization is formed as a club to provide the world with a central association of community that wants to learn rapidly by the world's foremost authority's on cannabis. I look forward to meeting you at one of our events! Like u son Facebook and follow us on Twitter!
