Even more evidence of marijuana’s growing prowess as a viable commodity (take that free vodka promotions!) is the fact that when marijuana speaks, people listen. And when marijuana wants your money, most of the time you give it to her.

A little know fact is that major LGBTQ youth organizations such as LYRIC and Larkin Street Youth Services receive donations from Cannabis dispensaries, The Apothecarium being one.
My name is Petey Wheatstraw, also known as Charles Stevens. I’m an avid marijuana smoker, writer, devoted father and non-profit minion– not necessarily in that order. A Chicago native I’ve lived off and on in the Bay Area since 1996. Seven years ago I finally settled here to capture the changing face of our communities.
