Since our humble beginning in 2014,
we have been on a mission to
end cannabis prohibition
in Tuolumne County. 

 

Our Mission

To ensure safe access for patients, substantiate the business of farmers, and encourage our community at large to consider what cannabis can do for our great foothill county.  

We wish to bring cannabis to the table as a way to build a healthier community, contribute to a vibrant economy, and utterly demystify the plant for the public at large.

 

how we do it

We have this EPIC plan and we hope you will join us.

E - educate

We educate our diverse community with outreach projects, positive cannabis conversations, and supplying information that should always be free.

p - participate

We collaborate with local politicians in public governmental forums.  We vote with our ballots and our dollars.  We look for opportunities to assist other public agencies of change and progress.

i - integrate

We keep the conversational atmosphere around cannabis open, respectful, and curious by offering guidance through our TCA Code of Conduct

c - cultivate

You know what to do here... the other part of cultivation is sharing it.  We humanize ourselves by vulnerably baring the heart and soul of cultivation culture of the central Sierra: four season multi-culture gardens with sustainable horticultural practices.


We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what’s in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.
— Barack Obama
