Radio Free Cannabis

Online Gathering Space for Our Global Community

Coming to you from high (very high) in the California Oakland Hills, this is Radio Free Cannabis, voice of the global cannabis freedom movement.

Today, there are hundreds of millions of people around the world who have developed a personal relationship with cannabis. Some of us live in places where the laws have been reformed already; many more of us still live under the darkness of Prohibition. No matter our race, religion, nationality, or place in society we have found our way to a common value system. That system values freedom over authority; creativity over conformity, nature over industry, peace over war, love over hate, radical inclusion over any type of prejudice; and an absolute rejection of any type of intolerance. That is who we are no matter where we find ourselves in geography or circumstances.
