Sasha Rivers experienced complications during pregnancy that left her with chronic nerve and back pain. After being medically discharged from the military, she found relief when using medical grade marijuana. A culmination of her experience and that of others, she believes that cannabis is a better alternative to overly prescribed opioids.
Sasha has since become an outspoken supporter for the medical marijuana industry, not only from the perspective of being a patient herself, but as a businesswoman who sees the infinite possibilities to bring a new revenue-generating industry to her home state of Oklahoma.
Seeing an opportunity to educate others about cannabis science and legalization, Sasha founded Cannabis Education Advocacy Symposium & Expo (C.E.A.S.E.), a non-profit organization intended to cease misconceptions and to enhance consumer understanding about the plant.
