_______________________________________________________________________________________

CANNTalks is an expansive forum for a new kind of connection and community. In focusing in on the current cannabis issues, and their associated debates, we seek to initiate increased cross-cultural awareness and consciousness of the many trans-global impacts of this complex plant; of an equally complicated industry; and of the social dynamics born of these interwoven aspects.

As the global landscape surrounding cannabis undergoes rapid transition and multiple regionally-specific changes on a legal, social, and practical level, new and vitally significant questions continue to be generated. CANNTalks engages with these questions - and with the history, policy, philosophy and concerns that act as cultural buffers to these questions - right now, as they arise. And from the standpoint that our choices and our debate hold the power for change from an ethically potent position.

This links to our essential placement as a Not-For-Profit Organisation, seeking to engage with fundamental human rights and better-life for all. This comes from a dynamic principle of open-development; changing communication; and increased acceptance - from every possible perspective.
