If the legalization and social justice efforts around cannabis over the last decade are any indication of what this year has in store, then 2022 is poised to be a sensational year for cannabis advocates. At High Hemp, we could not be more excited to watch this industry transform through the educational and social events that bring people from all walks of life together, bonding over a shared passion.
It is no surprise that California has become synonymous with cannabis culture since becoming the first state to legalize medical cannabis in 1996. 25 years later, Los Angeles has grown into one of the major hubs of cannabis culture in our country.
