Saturday October 14th found us in the Old Town Farm & Art Market in Wichita. The weather was cold, windy and cloudy. The crowds were down but we were not! Thanks to Board Member Nate Hiatt, his parents with High Point Pharms, and the Old Town Farm & Art Market for the booth space. As usual there is a LOT of support from the public for passing a medical cannabis bill. We cannot understand why legislators in leadership positions fail to understand this fact. As always, we will be out and about educating the public about cannabis and all the issues surrounding its ban in Kansas. See you at our next event!
Saturday September 30th KCC took part in Andover Days. Nate brough his grandfather's antique truck, we carried a KCC Banner, and walked in the parade. We were met with standing ovations and clapping as we handed out candy and green Mardi gras beads along the parade route. At our vendor table we educated residents about cannabis and political issues that Kansans are facing. Thank you to everyone who walked in the parade and manned the vendor table, we made a positive impact. We look forward to continuing educational opportunities in Andover and surrounding towns.
During the Kansas Legislative session, KCC board members and advisors met with legislators, brought in cannabis experts, and testified as proponents in favor of passing a medical cannabis program. We also spoke at events held in the Capitol in conjunction with other groups. Click below to see our amazing secretary Kimberly testifying during the Federal and State Affairs Committee hearing!
We believe cannabis education using current science based information is the key to moving a medical cannabis program forward. We held a rally on the Kansas and Missouri state line. We have had an informational table at community events including a hempfest event. Whenever the opportunity presents itself, you will see us with our table educating and answering questions.
The 2nd Annual Disc Golf Event was a success! This year in addition to the event we had several awesome vendors, Taco Truck, and a Tap Truck serving Ice cold beer to our participants. DJ E (board member Eddie Bohannon) provided music for the event. and we had 20 amazing baskets for the donation silent auction. Thank you to all who made this a memorable, fun event! We could not do it without your support.
