A Rebel Minded Society seeks to educate and raise cannabis awareness while bridging the gap between our community and the industry. The purpose of our Cannabis Awareness Society event series is to create events for the cannabis community to network, learn from, as well as educate each other about the benefits cannabis would have on society if allowed to thrive and develop. A.R.M.S hopes to foster a diverse community of advocates, patients, entrepreneurs, professionals, and enthusiasts, as we work to raise the public's level of consciousness and reshape the industry around Cannabis.
