Join us at Tea Pad on February 9th at the Light House Bistro in Annapolis with our featured guest, human and civil rights advocate Chairwoman Jheanelle K. Wilkins. Chairwoman Wilkins will share her goals for the 2023 Maryland General Assembly and for the Maryland cannabis industry.

Chairwoman Wilkins' legislative achievements include legislation related to addressing maternal health disparities, justice transformation and curbing racial profiling, and advancing educational equity. She is the first Black woman to represent Maryland's District 20 (Montgomery County) in the Maryland House of Delegates. Today, she leads The Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland, Inc. (LBCM). LBCM is an organization of 60 members who dedicate themselves to the mission of ensuring that Black people in the great state of Maryland are equally protected and benefited by the promises of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as afforded by the United States Constitution. LBCM is the largest Black Caucus in the U.S.

LCBM has been instrumental in the advocacy and passage of legislation that has benefited Blacks, and all Marylanders, since the 1970s. The Black legislators and community leaders, who serve as members and partners of the LBCM have stood steadfast and united in articulating public policy positions that promote Black progress in Maryland.

Join Tea Pad, Chairwoman Wilkins, like-minded cannabis industry professionals, entrepreneurs, and students to network, educate yourself, and help advocate for cannabis policy and law that demands equal opportunity in the cannabis industry.

The Jazz greats whose music and lyrics are the backbone of the Civil Rights Movement are celebrated at every Tea Pad. The multi-talented Eric Scott performs throughout the night on February 9th. His unique brand of funk and soul is infused with powerful lyrics that are in alignment with Tea Pad's focus on change-making and positivity.

It'll be a night with "the live jazz, good eats, plentiful libations, and provocative conservation" that Tea Pads are famous for. It's our mission to build our advocacy community to ensure that the cannabis industry provides equal opportunity for all - no matter gender or race. We're demanding social change and equity in the cannabis industry.
