Jedidiah is widely known as a cannabis advocate. His activism stems from providing safe and adequate access to cannabis for both qualified patients and adult consumers. Since 2014, he has worked on repealing local bans on legal cannabis across Washington State. He now works in cannabis policy in Olympia at the Washington State Capitol.
In 2004, Jedidiah was introduced to cultivating medical cannabis in Central Oregon. He became a caregiver for a group of patients and provided them with dried cannabis flower and processed butter. That original grow made Jedidiah realize how much energy is required to grow plants inside. To help solve this issue, Jedidiah applied himself into a new technique of hydroponic cultivation called aquaponics. In 2009, he co-founded an R&D firm called Four Seasons Fresh and worked on developing aquaponics into a viable business model for organic produce production.
More recently, Jedidiah has utilized his entrepreneurial experience and applied himself to the non-profit sector. Jedidiah mainly works on cannabis policy in order to assist the community in representing themselves in this transition past prohibition. He is a founding board member of the State’s largest cannabis trade association named The Cannabis Alliance, and their mission is to create an ethical and sustainable industry.
Currently, Jedidiah is working on a few campaigns for the expansion of the rights of cannabis patients and consumers. He works with a group of activists that have dubbed themselves the “A-Team.” Their projects are the span from a mini-doc series called “Schedule None” along with a “Cannabis 101” educational tour for Washington State.
