Over the last three years, cannabis has gained increasing popularity in Whatcom County. Yet, there is still much to learn and understand about this topic. This page, sponsored by the Center for Mindful Use (CMU), is designed to educate and raise awareness of the cannabis industry and what is happening within our own community.

CMU provides a safe, free and fun place to talk and learn with others about cannabis. Topics include the social, medical, spiritual, cultural, recreational, legal and historical foundations of cannabis and the best practices for its reintroduction into modern society.
