What better way to mark International Women's Day than listening to this inspiring interview with Francesca Brivio, a well known actress and TV presenter from Peru.
Francesca decided to use her celebrity to campaign for legal access to medicinal cannabis after going public about how she successfully used cannabis to manage the debilitating symptoms of a rare autoimmune disease.
She is President of Cannabis Gotas de Esperanza, a nonprofit association with a mission to educate the public, medical profession and politicians about medicinal cannabis, as well as co-founding CannaHope, a medicinal cannabis clinic in Lima.
Francesca has been instrumental in bringing about change to cannabis regulation in Peru and is currently battling with the Ministry of Health to allow patients to grow cannabis at home.
