Ontario Regional Coordinator at NORML Canada; Client Care Representative at Tweed Main Street
Abigail Sampson began her cannabis career as a volunteer with the Canadian Chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, NORML Canada, the longest running cannabis advocacy group in the country. Today, she sits on their Board of Directors, as one of only two women to hold Executive Board positions. Through her service as a Steering Committee member of the inaugural Women Grow Toronto chapter, Abigail was able to help empower a new generation of women to find their voice in the emerging cannabis industry, through the leadership, guidance and experiences of the courageous women who blazed the trail of cannabis legalization before them. Abigail presented as an expert witness before the Canadian Standing Committee on Health on Bill C45, the Cannabis Act. Abigail also appeared at Queens Park in response to Bill 178, an Act to amend the Smoke Free Ontario Act. Abigail currently works as a Client Care Representative at the Tweed Main Street shops, providing in-person support to those requiring guidance and education on medicinal cannabis.
