As you may have or may not have heard, the fearless leader of the Maine Cannabis Coalition (the group responsible for the success of keeping Maine’s cannabis industry small-business owned) and dedicated owner of East Coast CBD’s, Dawson Julia, has recently been in a terrible accident while on a family vacation. Dawson, with as much of a fighter as we all know him to be, is currently facing multiple life-threatening injuries. It Is with the love and hope of those he has impacted during his lifetime, along with his great warrior spirit, that is keeping him going right now.
The influence which Dawson has made on the Cannabis community in Maine is one of the biggest factors that has kept our small businesses afloat through these years.
Without his ambition and drive, the Maine Cannabis industry would be nowhere near the caliber we have reached today. Dawson is a beacon within Maine’s marijuana industry, and has fearlessly stood behind the positive benefits of the plant for Maine’s people and beyond. Dawson has served our community as a certified caregiver and avid educator of cannabis and it’s medical purposes for years. He has been a voice for our cannabis-use and small business rights fearlessly and consistently. If there is ever a cause being fought to better Maine’s cannabis rules or regulations for small businesses or patients, you can bet that Dawson is somethere behind it. Every time. Without a doubt.
It is time for us to stand behind him and his family through this time of great need.
The financial burden of this accident is truly something that no person or family should ever have to bear. As an entire community, we are open to ideas on how to best send care to Dawson and his loved ones while he is being treated out-of-state. Feel free to respond to this e-mail with any suggestions you may have on how we can work together as a community to ease this burden. As the saying goes, more hands make less work. Now is the time for us to pool together as one family of cannabis advocates and help one of the greatest through one of the heaviest tribulations that life will send his way. We owe it to Dawson and his family to step up in any way we can and make a difference. Every dollar and donation counts.
Currently, we are putting together a care package to send to Dawson, his wife, and his daughter—who are both with him during this time. If you would like to contribute to this care package in any way, please let us know. There is also a gofundme page currently running to help with medical expenses. You can access the fundraiser here – https://gofund.me/d42dd95f. If you have already donated, know that you are making a huge difference for a family who is more than deserving—and thank you so much. If you are unable to donate, please consider sharing this link through all social media to help get the word out there for an enormous cause. Even this gesture makes a huge impact. We are all in this together, and Dawson has had the back of Maine Cannabis users from the beginning. It is time to #DoIt4Dawson.
