Jeana Acosta

Project Director 

Jeana is a daily cannabis user. She uses cannabis, along with a plant based diet and yoga practice, to help treat PTSD and chronic pain. After the Biden Administration removed Cannabis users from their positions at the White House, she felt we needed to make a statement showing that cannabis users are high-functioning members of society and deserve to be treated as such. Cannabis has been proven to treat a number of different aliments, and it's important that we look at cannabis and plant medicine as a first option, not a last resort.
