Cannabis Museum in Weed California
People traditionally think of California as the birthplace of legal weed. We were the first state to legalize medical marijuana and have recently taken the long anticipated step of legalizing recreational marijuana. Weed California is in a little corner of Northern California. This area of California is still very reluctant to embrace the benefits of the plant. Our County has still outlawed any commercial grows and has banned ALL outdoor cultivation. This is still a very uphill battle with many fights ahead. We think Weed California is the perfect place for Northern California's first Cannabis museum. Located just off the state's main interstate, conveniently located between San Francisco CA and Portland OR. A peaceful stop on many a traveler's journey thru the area. Our goal is to educate and inform the public about cannabis. A plant that has been used as medicine for thousands of years. A plant that can be used in place of trees for fiber and paper. A plant whose time has come.
Initially we have a small space on main street that we will be utilizing. Our dreams expand beyond this small space however and the dream is to not only expand the museum, but offer educational classes, retreats and even events to promote and reach the world. Our goal is to get this plant to the people who need it, and to educate people that the fear that has been created around this plant is not warranted. It should be studied. One of our obstacles is that their are no Grants for cannabis as it is still labeled as a federally banned substance.
We will also be launching an online museum with interactive online exhibits including classes and an informative blog.
As you can imagine all of this will take some financial backing to realize. I am a medical provider with a Masters in Medicine. I will focus on the medical gifts of the plant. My husband is a permaculture designer and farmer, who will focus on the cultivation and industrial uses. We would love to hire someone to help us keep the doors open and run the logistics for starters. If things take off, we will continue to grow and expand with the stretch goal of building a larger museum with a staff. Please help us get this project off to a good start.
We look forward to hosting each of you in our space in Weed California.
We'ed like to welcome you to the next epicenter of Cannabis education, at North State Canna, Weed's first cannabis museum.
Risks and challenges
One of the problems with everything related to cannabis is money. There is no grant money. There is very little legitimate research funding due to it's federal status as a schedule 1 drug. Despite it's therapeutic benefits and industrial uses, it has a stigma that people just don't want to be associated with. To really create change however we are dreaming big, and want to bring everyone along with us!! So lets reach for the stars. We want to change hearts and minds about this very powerful, ancient plant.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
