Two Women from New York City’s Public Relations Industry Make a Splash in Cannabis

Brenda and Tracey were drawn to the industry after transformative experiences with medical cannabis. Tracey is a cancer survivor herself and Brenda lost her father to complications from esophageal cancer. Tracey did not have access to the medicinal benefits of cannabis for cancer treatment until chemotherapy left her desperately seeking relief.
