With all the legal implications, and even facing felony charges at one point, Michelle still took the risk of smoking to help with her medical needs. At that time, Michelle became an advocate for Cannabis. MJ served on the OG Fest Board and played a major role in the coordination and planning of Oklahoma’s first Cannabis Grow Cup “OG FEST 2019” that helped bring patients together to celebrate the end of prohibition for Cannabis.  MJ’s goal with the magazine is to provide a platform for the voices of the patients in the state of Oklahoma, however, popularity with the magazine is reaching patients and activists from across the country who want to share their story. Cannabis Chronicles is not Oklahoma’s first Cannabis-related magazine, but it is the first magazine by the people, for the people. Giving patients and activists a place to share their stories and get the recognition and support they need.  Be sure to also visit Facebook Page.  If you would like to tell your story, Contact Us.
