Chicago Magazine, December 2015: Joseph Wright, King Cannabis

December 3, 2015 in Photography

Medical marijuana is officially available in Illinois!!!!!  HOORAY!!!!!!!!!  I was very excited when Chicago Magazine asked me to photograph Joseph Wright, the Director of the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program (and even more excited when I found out he is a young handsome lawyer with a super sharp suit!).  Also very intelligent, he appears to have a bright political future.  The thing I liked most about Joseph Wright: his passion for his job and excitement about helping people!  There is nothing cooler than getting to work with people that love what they do!:)

…Unfortunately, the list of approved conditions is very small, but this is the start of legislation I truly believe will assist and benefit so many people!!!!  If you’re interested – you can petition the Medical Cannabis Advisory Board mcpp.illinois.gov to recommend conditions to the state’s director of public health (can we all do this please????!!!!).   You can visit my site if you want to see more of the fun photos I love to make, and stay tuned for more!!! 🙂
