Our PA Apothecarium dispensaries will be celebrating Autism Acceptance month through a fundraising partnership with Hope Grows for Autism. Hope Grows for Autism is a NON-PROFIT organization whose mission is to advance medical cannabis as a front-line solution for symptoms and clusters for symptoms related to autism to improve the lives of families and individuals living with autism. Their vision is to see a world where medical cannabinoids are legalized, destigmatized, and accessible to autistic individuals and their families.
