Who We Are

We are a group of attorneys with the collective goal to keep the power of cannabis policy with the people. With 20+ years of experience working in government, practicing law and serving the public, we are well equipped to support the individuals advocating for equitable policies that put people over corporations.

What We Do

Our team was the first in the nation to devise a clear path for small businesses and historically disenfranchised groups to enter the market. We are here to help create polices that reflect the needs of the millions of people who continue to form the legal cannabis movement.

Why We Do It

We make policy resources accessible to everyone, especially consumers, workers, and people impacted by the policies. In our experience, the more people who engage with policy, the better the results. We created Parabola Center so everyone can have the tools to be influential.

Cannabis policy for people, not corporations.
