Got a connection?

Mike Crawford, a/k/a Mike Cann, co-host of UnRegular Radio's Two Hotheads: Where Activism Happens, and longtime marijuana-legalization advocate, recommends that patients find local support groups and organizations, and attend their meetings to network. By networking, Crawford says, you can find out what caregivers are legitimate, and who's happy with their caregiver. "There're no official rules on [finding] a caregiver, so talk to people and try different ones out, until you find one you like," he says, also recommending Google and Facebook as resources to find organizations that are hosting meetings among medical-marijuana patients.
