Being a patient using medical cannabis can be a constant battle, whether it be with local government, or you are struggling with finding access. Etienne Fontan, principal of Berkeley Patients Group, has been an advocate for medical cannabis patients for thirty years; more than most in the cannabis industry today. Hear what wisdom he has to share with you on The Thoughtful Entrepreneur.
Berkeley Patients Group is the nation’s longest running dispensary and a patient advocacy resource for cannabis access and education. “We originally started as wanting to provide medical cannabis for patients to not have to wait for government oversight or relief,” Fontan says, “we saw and found from our own use, the efficacious use of cannabis was available to us. So therefore, we felt it our duty to help others get it and have access to it.”
