Hispanic Heritage Month.

The Cannabis and Hemp Hispanic Business Alliance.

In light of Hispanic Heritage, I would like to inform the public about CHHBA (pronounced Chaba). I had first introduced CHHBA, in one of my articles. The mission that the Cannabis and Hemp Hispanic Business Alliance has taken on is to help include the Hispanic community into the Cannabis World Congress Business Expo (CWCBEXPO).

The NY Cannbis Times is a proud sponsor and Co- Founder of the Cannabis & Hemp Hispanic Business Alliance. We are inviting our faithful readers either to become sponsors or members. There are levels to sponsorships, and our memeberships are relatively inexpensive. The Cannabis & Hemp Hispanic Business Alliance, was born from the lack there of; Hispanics and or Latinos at the Expo. What is alarming is the impact that the hispanic community has had in the cannabis market, both open market and legal market industry is undeniable. The Impact that we are ready to make will be priceless.

The Creation of CHHBA.

Each of the co-founders is of Hispanic descent; one of our co-founders only speaks spanish, and within the days of the CWCB-Expo, he had noticed not one “Se Habla Español” sign anywhere (we speak spanish). We all didn’t meet until the last evening of the Expo, this is something I had noticed at my first expo to be exact at the Seed to Sale in Denver 2017. We all happen to meet at the CWCB-Expo Yacht Party, accidentally in human perception. We were all surrounding the Cannabis Business Award stage. When we heard the announcement that Happy Munkey had won an award. I personally know the founders of the Apple of Gotham’s eyes. My friend Ike, comes up to me. “Evelyn que fue lo que dijieron” “all I heard was Happy Munkey” (tranlation – What was it that was said). Mind you I am trying to text him as he asks me. I am like “dude you won! you won!” go get you award! All he can say is won what?!;The apple of Gotham’s Eyes

Meanwhile back at the ranch, several people where listening, it so happened that my future partners and co-founders where listening to Ike and myself scramble our thoughts in spanish, well in Dominican (Dominicans have their own argo, unlike anything you have ever heard before atleast in spanish that is) To make a long story short, (some of this will be on the Happy Munkey Podcast). We met up the next day had dinner and we sealed the deal Cannabis and Hemp Hispanic Business Alliance was born. It was born out of the right to be included, we have earned the right to be there at that CWCBExpo.

Today The Cannabis and Hemp Hispanic Business Alliance is on its way to the 2020 CWCBExpo. You are welcome to inquire join and sponsor, the revenue and recognition offered at this expo will be priceless.

The Last Prisoner Project.

And just like that as if he brought the heat from Jamaica with him Steve DeAngelo lands In NY for his Fundraiser.

A special fundraiser held at a very special event location. The apple of NY’s Eye’s, Please reach out to lastprisonerproject.org for donation information. The Humble activist arrived in what has become his signature project. The Last prisoner project specializes in helping those still in prison for cannabis in states where it may or may not be legal. Many have been doing time needlessly. Before I left the fundraiser. The last Prisoner Project had raised 20k of the 50k goal. Yes I did leave early, unfortuantely.Grateful to have been able to meet him. I must add that he holds a special place in the come up of the NY Cannabis Times. It so happened that it is because of his interaction on The NY Cannabis Times’s IG, that I realized we are on the right track; If we stay focused anything is possible. Now we are writing more than ever researching more than ever an not missing an event.The Last prisoner project has helped so many. What this man is doing is changing lives and helpiong me regain control of their lives again. It isn’t all about cannabis possesion, some were incarecerated for having cannabis business and saving the money in the bank. Some were incarecerated due to unjust state laws. Steve Deangelo is working tirelessly and succesfully. To raise in less than 2 hours 20k for America’s inmates is priceless.

Along with a powerful message delivered by Fab 5 Freddy, another Icon and pioneer MC in the Hip Hop nation. The at Evening went on with out a hitch.
The Location of the Event. As we say in Memes today “oh Lawd” there is only so much I can say with one word let me see. Innovators, in the game. Game Changers, sorry guys I just can’t do it with out adding more adjectives the Happy Munkey is a have to be there kind of place to even begin to understand. Keep in mind that this location deserves it’s own article spread.
So stay tuned.
