This is a long overdue podcast that was recorded a couple of weeks ago. Wendy Love Edge and Topher Kogen have been fighting on the frontlines of the drugwar in Arkansas, and recently invited me onto their show to discuss the Florida medical marijuana program. On this episode I invite them on to discuss what their role has been in the legalization push, and how things are going in Arkansas. This is an amazing episode that’s an hour in length and covers a wide range of topics. Wendy Love Edge is an accomplished author, educator, philanthropist, activist and advocate that is working day and night to raise awareness to the miracle we know as the Cannabis plant.
Wendy Love’s Full Bio:
WENDY LOVE EDGE is local author, artist, talk show host and cannabis activist. She is from Boston originally, and has recently made NWA her home again after several years. Ms. Love Edge is magna cum laude graduate of Boston University in 1987, with a BS in Occupational therapy. Ms. Love Edge is most known for being the founder of Bulldozer Health Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization and health care reform initiative. You can learn more about it at www.bulldozerhealth.org.
In 2017, Ms. Love Edge authored the book, “Sixteen: My Journey into Wellness”. She then authored and illustrated two more books for children. The first is “Helpful Hannah Creates Her Own Health and Happiness” and the second is “Helpful Hannah Educates Herself About Cannabis”. These books are meant to educate and inspire individuals to health empowerment and improved health and wellness. The cannabis education book was written to teach children the truth about the cannabis family of plants, and reduce the stigma attached to it.
As an artist, Ms. Love Edge spent her formative years immersed in art, music and dance. She dabbled in acrylics, water color and pastels, coming from a family of creatives. She was able to utilize her talents and knowledge when she worked for 25 years as an occupational therapist, utilizing the art and science of therapy to treat patients. She began to work with painting again in recent years, for not only it’s therapeutic value, but to send the messages of health, wellness, ending cannabis prohibition, promoting cannabis as medicine, and encouraging personal spirituality. It has truly been a journey of art and healing that has created her most recent works.
Ms. Love Edge was recently selected to be an artist member of The Cannabis Art Guild, presently one of 8 artists worldwide. Her work will be with hemp materials for the guild, where “the medium is the message”. This exhibit will tour worldwide at cannabis events and exhibits starting in 2019.
