Every year HIGH TIMES Magazine presents the Freedom Fighter of the Year Award to one extraordinary person who has demonstrated outstanding commitment and effectiveness in the cannabis legalization movement.
This year we are honored and humbled to present the 2011 Freedom Fighter of the Year Award to Debby Goldsberry of California.
Debby has been fighting for marijuana rights for 25 years. She is known throughout the San Francisco Bay Area as a leading, eloquent voice for legal cannabis.
She is the founder of the Cannabis Action Network and the Berkeley Patients Group, one of California’s model medical marijuana collectives. She has helped architect three different cannabis laws in Berkeley, California. She led the campaign against bad cannabis laws in San Jose, gathering over 50,000 signatures. She founded Know Your Rights, an organization created to inform cannabis users and growers of their legal rights.
And she now is ambassador for Steep Hill Labs of Oakland, California, the world’s leading cannabis testing lab.
Debby is a columnist for HIGH TIMES Medical Marijuana Magazine but, most importantly, she is the mother of a beautiful four-year-old daughter.
Congratulations to Debby Goldsberry, our 2011 Freedom Fighter of The Year!
