CHA is focused on awareness and education of cannabis as well as the deconstruction of stigmata surrounding the plant. One of the major ways to push the social agenda of acceptance is by providing a safe haven for like-minded cannabis lifestylers. The CHA has begun to lay the foundation for a full blown global community around cannabis through the commitment to providing events 365 days a year around cannabis. At the present time the CHA is hosting weekly networking events and the first of many monthly events, however the goal is to ensure that more opportunities to be in community with like-minded people arise. While the CHA is just a fledgling organization based out of New York City, we have seen tremendous support for our initiative and want to encourage cannabis leadership nationwide and worldwide. Begin to organize and coordinate events that allow people that are passionate about cannabis to get together and meet. Cannabis is a cause of champions and it only takes the commitment of one person to make a difference and champion the cause! The stigmata attached to cannabis is unacceptable and only through the work of others will cannabis become a mainstream accepted medicine at the social level. The beautiful thing about cannabis is how open it is, people of every demographic, preference, race, ethnicity, and occupation advocate its use. There are endless possibilities of the type of events and programs that can be formed in the name of this great divider! Cannabis can be the common thread that brings people together that would normally never converse and be the uniting force that joins them toward a common goal.
Below I have created an abstract of the potential of what a cannabis community might look like once fully established. Feel free to take a look! This could be your city in 2015!
