Happy holidays: A poetic run down of why 2013 was cannabis's year
December 23, 2013
What. A. Year.
As I celebrate the holidays at my parent’s home in rural Minnesota, I can’t help but think back to where I was a year ago this time: I was here for the holidays as well, surely as cold as I am today, recovering from a round of final projects in interior design school, and pondering what to do with my career post-graduation. I was hoping to find a way to have a meaningful career in the cannabis industry that I had grown to love and adore over the past two and a half years leading up to then, but wasn’t quite sure where that goal would lead…Like so many other entrepreneurs in the past year, I did manage to find a way to make that dream career come to fruition in our Nation’s fastest growing industry. So for this week’s blog, I want to express my gratitude (and amazement in our progress) by sharing some of the incredible strides the cannabis movement achieved in 2013, weaved into a warm holiday tale that leaves you as motivated and eager to begin 2014 as I am. Cheers!
It showed people from career paths of every walk and kind
Are heavily invested in putting prohibition behind.
All of this in one year! It is hard to fathom.
But there is amazing talent in our industry–
and a hell of a lot of passion.
We are strong, we are poised, and we are ready to grow
But the race is not won and there is a long way to go.
So as you open your presents and ring in the new year,
Keep all of these great strides of our industry near.
If we keep working hard, and mind our P’s and Q’s
And I’m betting in 2014 we will not lose.
