Millions suffer from conditions daily that could be helped by cannabis, and yet, it continues to be stigmatized in our society. The goal of Cultivate is to help legitimize medical cannabis, while providing patients with critical information. At the time of this project, 23 states and Washington, D.C. had legalized medical cannabis, and 77% of the American public supported this movement. On the Cultivate website, you can learn how much cannabis and how many plants you can have medically, as well as the penalties for possession outside of the legal limits. Because medical cannabis is regulated on a state level, rather than federal, there are a lot of nuances and discrepancies between states. These can be compared by state within the seven listed categories —cannabis, plants, CBD, dispensaries, caregivers, registration and a legal timeline. Through the timeline, explore the history of legalization and future legislation. If you have Glaucoma, you can find out what states you qualify in for medical cannabis. If you click on the timeline, you can learn about the latest studies and research regarding your condition and cannabis. Beyond a shift towards legalization, there needs to be a societal shift towards acceptance. Cultivate hopes to help both of these movements.
