On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel speaks with Moriah Barnhart. Moriah founded CannaMoms in 2013 after her daughter Dahlia was diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer and she discovered that cannabis provided much needed relief in her daughters care. She is a strong proponent of taking rights to one’s body and health and putting it back into the hands and homes of the patients and their caregivers, and she fights diligently alongside those with the same mission and message for legislative changes on a federal and state level. In 2015, Moriah helped launch Women Grow Tampa Bay, serving as founding chairwoman of the organization aimed at connecting, educating, and empowering women in all segments of the cannabis industry. She also organized large-scale advocacy efforts in support of Amendment 2, the successful 2016 ballot measure that established Florida’s medical cannabis program. Moriah currently sits on the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Hemp Advisory Committee and Consumer Education Subcommittee. Moriah is a founding board member of WISE Florida, The Women’s Initiative for a Safe and Equitable Florida, launched by a diverse group of supporters who recognize the harms caused by cannabis prohibition and share a commitment to advancing sensible cannabis policy reform in Florida.
