It may seem counterintuitive to bring up cannabis at your Thanksgiving table, or on social media, or at a professional networking event. But we’re living in a new era.

This is Sacramento, and cannabis is legal! Other than residual stigma from the “dark ages” (the time when cannabis wasn’t legal yet), there’s no reason you shouldn’t stand up for what you believe in. Especially if you’re a business owner, a medical professional, or some are in another respected profession, showing your support for cannabis will help change the perspective on what a cannabis supporter looks like.
