The Bay Area Latino Cannabis Alliance “BALCA” is proud to present our bilingual
anthology of 2021 cannabis writings by so many different dynamic leaders of our
community. Within the community, so many voices, stories, challenges, and victories
exist. Many legacy and equity cannabis operators have written powerful testimonies
on being criminalized for engaging in Cannabis. Pulling the lens back, governments
worldwide have been outlawing sacred plant medicines for a long time, which shaped
a central part of our experience.
