About Trista Miller

As a teenager, Trista's goal in life was to become an attorney so she could help get marijuana legalized. As an adult, her passion shifted to helping those being harmed by the foster care system and CPS, but she's never lost her marijuana supporting ways. After working with various community groups to improve foster care for children, she became a parent and a CPS case that started out because of accused marijuana usage.

Now, her passion has been renewed not only to help those in foster care, but also to legalize marijuana for all so that it is no longer an excuse to harass and traumatize families.
