Around BuffaLowe: Grass Is Greener Movie Screening + Cannabis Panel Discussion 6.1.19 [Event]

Often times people will ask me, “Lowe why did you leave Buff and move to Cali?”

I’ve been gone 8 years this coming November. My answer is always “the weed and the weather brought me here.”

Working directly in the cannabis industry in a state that’s been medicinally legal since the 90’s, led me to start my own cannabis-empowered brands, Rhonda Jane (inspired by my middle name and Mary Jane), a 420 Chic online shopping boutique and Dope Mom Lifestyle Collective, a hub for moms and parents-to-be who utilize a holistic approach to pregnancy and parenthood with safe cannabis usage!

Fast forward to 2019, and New York State seems to be finally following suit on the cannabis legalization front.

My boy Valentino Shine, CEO of Shine Marijuana Marketing is on the East Coast in my hometown of Buffalo, NY and staying ahead of the curve by expanding his marketing brand to assist cannabis-based companies find their footing on this new journey.

Tomorrow, June 1st, 2019 he is assisting with what he mentions is “a recruiting and educational event on the magical plant and the opportunities it can and has created for people, cities, and states.”

Working with Canna House the social cannabis club and Farmacy Six, a cannabis non-profit organization focused on advocacy and education, this event will be very beneficial to those interested in decriminalizing the stigma attached to using this plant (recreationally or medicinally).

When: Saturday, June 1st, 2019

Where: 1 Lafayette Square Downtown Buffalo, NY

Time: 12-4p

Cost: FREE with RSVP here!

This is NOT a consumption based event! Movie screening and open panel discussion only!

Come out and learn and support!

Around BuffaLowe: S&J Foundation presents Let’s Talk About Mental Health [5.29.19]

I learned about this event by way of my girl Adri V’s Instagram story last week. Jamil Crews, who kindly honored myself and several other nominees in October 2017 at the 4th Annual 30 Under 30 Changemakers Awards, is hosting a mental health forum and I strongly encourage anyone who can attend to go!

Hopefully our resident Buffalo blogger Marielle can make it to this so we can share the information provided on a later post!

It’s time to have some real conversations about Mental Health.

Jamil Crews assembled some really dope speakers to talk about mental health as it relates to people with learning disabilities. Those disabilities can take a major toll on your mental health and he wants to help you learn to manage it.

Karl Shallowhorn from Community Health Center of Buffalo is coming in to speak. Karl himself has dealt with having mental health issues, and has now dedicated his life to helping those manage their own mental health issues.

Janielle Mckoy, who is a fashion producer, is coming all the way from Toronto to speak. She had to learn to deal with having dyslexia, and she’s going to talk about that.

And a person who really doesn’t need an introduction, Danielle Roberts from the YMCA will be on hand to speak as well. Danielle is truly passionate about the community she serves and she’s going to talk about a lot of the great programming coming out of the Y to help people with learning disabilities.

It will be hosted by the very talented Yasmin Young from 93.7 WBLK – The People’s Station.

They will also have free mental health screenings on site.

So let’s talk with J and #BreakTheStigma!
