Felicia is a Latinx social entrepreneur and activist who has been impacted by the War on Drugs. She got her start in both the LGBTQ liberation movement and the medical cannabis movement in the early 1990’s. She has worked with countless California patients, caregivers, dispensaries, and cannabis industry investors to find the best methods to ensure that patients receive accurate information, quality medicine, and that compassion remains a part of this industry through the California Compassionate Use Act. In 2013 she was named one of The Advocate Magazine’s 40 under 40 LGBT leaders for her work in cannabis.
