About Leslie Reyes

Leslie Reyes is a nurse and a volunteer on the Certification Committee for the American Cannabis Nurses Association. In 2006, she started working in a medical cannabis dispensary in West Hollywood, CA, where she stayed for three years as a patient advocate and caregiver. After hearing so many of the patients' stories, attending various medical conferences, witnessing a brutal DEA raid on the collective members and seeing how misinformed the medical community at large was about cannabis, Leslie decided to pursue a nursing degree so she could continue to advocate for cannabis patients as a nurse. Leslie is also a certified yoga instructor (RYT-200) and studying to specialize in endocannabinoid therapeutics and holistic nursing.
