In an effort to amplify the Black and Brown experience in the cannabis industry and drive the desire to not only legalize marijuana, but #legalizeitright Natural High Company will host our Juneteenth Emancipation Edition of the “Plates and Plants” dinner series in Los Angeles, CA on Friday, June 17th. We want everyone to have a seat at the table to share in fellowship, impactful dialogue and meaningful solutions to ensure Black, Brown and community ally voices continue to make a difference in cannabis equity in both legacy and emerging markets. We will also donate funds in support of advocacy partner Fully Integrated, Inc. 501(c)3 to help support a BIPOC and/or women owned cannabis start-up.
It is essential that the cannabis business support minority and women-owned businesses in the cannabis industry, as well as consistently practice inclusivity and representation of the communities that have been so deeply affected by the prohibition of the plant, which helps so many. Through advocacy, education, and legislation we also intend to change the narrative in our community, encourage normalization, and support the reform needed to decriminalize and rectify the sentences of those caught in the crossfire of the “War on Drugs”.
#PlatesandPlants is an infused culinary and cannabis education experience created to elevate the senses and allow consumers a unique cannabis experience. We offer the opportunity for a complete sensory adventure for the canna-curious and connoisseur alike. This includes sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell. Our goal is to create a luxe and intimate cannabis experience, while also expanding mindsets, educating, and normalizing the plant.
Our Los Angeles edition of Plates & Plants will feature world-renowned canna-chef Andrea Drummer!
Chef Drummer’s culinary experience dates back to her childhood in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. She first learned the basics of cooking by watching and helping her mother at age 6.
In the midst of a successful career in the business world, Chef Drummer realized that she could no longer ignore her life passion of cooking. After honing her palette living in Miami, Philadelphia, Atlanta and Brooklyn, she left corporate America to attend Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles, CA.
