Sysamone Phaphon and Eunice Kim collaborated to create an ongoing education initiative for cannabis literacy and accessibility for the AAPI communities.  With the help of many other AAPI cannabis activists, they published a book that translates cannabis terminology into many Asian languages. The book contains easy-to-understand definitions of cannabis terms, as well as information about the various ways cannabis can be used and consumed. It also includes stories from AAPI patients and advocates who have experienced the healing effects of cannabis firsthand. Following the book's release, Sysamone and Eunice held a series of community events to promote its message and allow people to learn more about cannabis in an open and safe environment. Through their efforts, they hope to make sure that everyone has access to education about cannabis so that they can make informed decisions about their health care.Important links:CannaCuriousYour Highness SubstackHiVi lifeSavanh WellnessRanchera (listeners can use code YHPOD for 10% off)Yourmomlikesmymusic
