Collecting US Cannabis/Marijuana History
I am the president/chair of the nonprofit, all-volunteer organization 420 Archive. We are working with communities to collect the oral histories and documentation surrounding US cannabis/marijuana history and culture.
After conducting a two-year, comprehensive needs assessment, it was clear that US marijuana history was on the edge of being lost. At the time of the needs assessment, no academically driven, archive-quality oral histories and documentation on marijuana farming, production, or activists' attempts to repeal laws had been collected.
