The American Cannabis Nurses Association was conceived by Julia (Ed) Glick in 2006 during the Patients Out of Time Fourth National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics in Santa Barbara California. ACNA was envisioned as a nursing organization that represented the emerging field of endocannabinoid therapeutics to professional nurses, providing scientific, patient, and educational opportunities to assist nurses in understanding and advocating for their patients’ needs. Julia suggested the idea to Mary Lynn Mathre, Patients Out of Time co-founder (and a registered nurse) noting that, “if we don’t do it, someone else will.” It took a couple of years, but in 2009 and 2010, Julia and Mary Lynn began the process of completing documents to incorporate ACNA and set up financial accounting, logo development and outreach to the American Nurses Association.
