Community Advocacy Award Sponsored by Oaksterdam University

The opportunity to enjoy the many benefits of cannabis today rests on those brave enough to step forward in the legalization movement. The Oaksterdam Community Advocacy Award recognizes the budtender who is educated on the history of prohibition and works to ensure that everyone has the right to safe, legal access to medicinal and adult-use cannabis. This budtender goes over and above, in words and actions, to educate and advocate for patients, consumers, and the community.
