A New Kind Of Refugee Is Getting Help From The Cannabis Industry.

The Travel Joint, the world's leading cannabis travel-booking source and leisure site, is on a mission to assist those who can be helped by medical cannabis but aren't receiving the medicine they need because of outdated laws in their home state. Dubbed "The Cannabis Refugee Program," The Travel Joint is now accepting applications from families that need financial assistance to relocate.

"Uprooting a family and moving to a new state is never an easy task, which is why we want to help Cannabis Refugees as much as we can," said The Travel Joint CEO Brannon Zimbelman. "Families should never have to choose between the health of their children and a job in a state where access to medical cannabis is prohibited. We look forward to the day that programs like ours are no longer needed because cannabis will be legalized on a nationwide scale."

Utilizing social media, The Travel Joint will announce one family a month that were chosen based on a list of criteria ranging from severity of illness to financial need. The Travel Joint hopes to have surplus of aid coming in from outside businesses so that it can support each family for a 3-month period and make the transition as smooth as possible. Our goals are to find them comparable if not better jobs, resources and communities.
