Green Rush Podcast: Revisiting Melissa Lavasani

Advertising Feature: This podcast is from a partner and was not produced by GreenState.

Welcome to the Green Rush, a KCSA Strategic Communications Production, a weekly conversation at the intersection of cannabis, psychedelics, the capital markets and culture.

This week we are revisiting a conversation our hosts Anne Donohoe and Lewis Goldberg had earlier this year with Melissa Lavasani, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Psychedelic Medicine Coalition (PMC) and Founder and President of Psychedelic Medicine Political Action Committee (PM-PAC). In that conversation, Melissa joined to share her psychedelics origin story, discuss her work with PMC, and how her organizations are advocating and lobbying for safe and effective psychedelic medicines in Washington D.C.

As legislation like the Breakthrough Therapies Act and other initiatives at the state level progress forward, we wanted to revisit how the movers and shakers like Melissa are working behind the scenes to advance these important therapies.

So sit back and enjoy our conversation with Melissa Lavasani of Psychedelic Medicine Coalition and Psychedelic Medicine Political Action Committee.
