It is just like Cathy to go out with a bang. I had my phone off because I was studying. Opened my facebook and this was the first post. I'm in utter disbelief. Not in disbelief about the fact that she is gone. She was one of the longest living ALS survivors. I'm in disbelief, complete awe really, and always have been, at the sheer impact Cathy and her journey has had on our community. She has helped so many, changed the hearts and minds of so many...I will forever miss your laughter and your smile. We will carry this torch the rest of the way Cathy. You rest easy. You earned it. As I listen to these fireworks going off, I will light the sweet leaf up in your honor and remember the firework you were. Most people won't know Cathy led the creation of the first medical marijuana bill in the state of Florida, was a plaintiff in several federal lawsuits, was given medical necessity (permission to have a Cannabis garden) traveled around the country to speak, raised money for Florida Cannabis Action Network, and inspired people coast-to-coast to do more to free the plant. You can learn about Cathy and see her journey at Cathy Jordan Movie on Facebook.

I’m so sorry for your loss and the loss to our community… Cathy was and always will be that heartbeat the industry needed to stay grounded. I hope if her family needs anything let me know.

    I am honored to find myself included on this list of powerful Cannabis Warrior WOMEN!! We stand on the shoulders of giants. The road can make you weary so it's fantastic to remember that many walk with you on this path. Steve Bloom is such a legend to me and I thank you dearly for curating this list and shining a light on so many deserving women.

    HB 1435 will offer free medical cannabis cards to Veterans with a service related disability. This was the first committee stop. We have miles to go before we can get this bill signed. We were honored to have Crystal Silins, a veteran from the Panhandle representing Florida Cannabis Action Network and our allied veterans groups. Thank you to Representative Valdés and Senator Torres for bringing this bill forward and Rep. Michelle Salzman for hearing it.

    It's not easy. It's cold out. It's the middle of the work week. It's short notice. We've been up twice for hemp this week already. Tallahassee is far away.IT'S INTENTIONAL.The caps bill (HB1269) was put on agenda at 430pm last night. They want to divide our numbers. They're counting on no one showing up. Our free MMJ cards for Veterans bill is being heard too and we're really proud of that.I've never made a plea like this before but they've had 8 years to move the ball and have done nothing but try to take us backwards. So this is what needs to be done:1) FLOOD Michelle Salzmans phone line and email. This is not the will of the people. This does not have to be heard and as Chair she has power to take it off the agenda.Salzman(850) 717-5001(850) 471-6024Michelle.salzman@myfloridahouse.gov2) go to FLCAN.ORG/ENGAGE and sign our petition3) Share our posts and make people aware of what is happening.FB: Florida Cannabis Action Network IG: fl_can_official4)Get in your car, rent a van, or give gas money to someone who will drive up to Tallahassee. Meet us on Thursday morning (tomorrow) at 11am. We will meet in the lobby of the HOB (House Office Building). If you're standing in front of the Capitol entrance in the courtyard it's the smaller building to your right.
