New Health-Based Website Aims to Change the Face of Medical Marijuana
Date:5/1/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

Los Angeles currently boasts over 700 dispensaries. For medical marijuana patients, finding one that’s safe, clean and welcoming isn’t as easy as it sounds. New website, Hopegrown.org, aims to change that. Says founder Pete Lamptey, “We’re creating a unique and free online-resource that caters not only to patients, but to the friends and loved ones of those patients. We’re bridging the gap for the curious and trepidatious, offering them safe and relevant cannabis health information.” Two years ago, Lamptey, a medical marijuana patient himself, teamed up with co-founder and fellow patient, Peter Story (yes, Pete & Peter), to begin work on what both consider to be a grassroots movement. Says Story, “We’re simply a dedicated group of teachers, lawyers, doctors and artists who are giving our best to make this thing happen.”

Story, attests that timing is everything. And he’s right. According to the latest report from the Pew Research Center, a now clear 52% majority of Americans favor legalizing the use of marijuana while 45% were against it. But the stat Pete and Peter are interested in is the one that says that nearly half of all Baby Boomers now favor legalizing cannabis--making it among the highest percentages for the 49-65 age group ever. “We’re interested in the Boomers as well as the older patients because we believe they stand to benefit most from medical marijuana,” says Lamptey. “They have the most cases of chronic illnesses and we want to provide a place on the internet where they can get help and find the answers to their questions without being made to feel like a criminal.”  

You can tell this is a key issue for Lamptey and his business partner.  A common Google search for help finding medical marijuana will lead most first time users to sites like WeedMaps.com.  Considered the Goliath of marijuana finder websites, WeedMaps rakes
