Working Together to Build an Industry, Not Just a Business

John Davis: Northwest Patient Resource Center

It was 1993 when he was able to get his hands on the document that opened his eyes to the truth of the senseless prohibition on cannabis. This is the day things changed for him; this is when his passion in life was determined; this is the day he came to awaken his activism and join the cannabis policy reform. And 17 years later, he’s still hard at work doing just that and plenty more. John Davis, founder of Northwest Patient Resource Center, is a maverick in his own regard, yet he does so intelligently and consciously and is bringing this industry out into the light.
