Among many functions, this includes providing factual, accurate and current information; strategic planning; conducting research and factual investigations; providing written memoranda and reports, and assistance with drafting of documents and agreements related to the exploration and execution of industry endeavors.

HOW JOY WORKS: While Joy's primary clients hire her on a monthly retainer basis, she receives inquiries throughout the day via phone, email and social media from around the globe. This is the most exciting time in the known history of human evolution to be involved in industrial hemp and all forms of Cannabis; and Joy - like her rare counterpart colleagues across the world - is balancing her vigorous professional, activist, writing, speaking, and family obligations. In order to manage these obligations, her pro bono services (which comprise approximately 50% of her work) are considered exclusively for State departments of agriculture, lawmakers, regulators, institutions of higher education, and North American Indigenous Nations.

Joy sets aside a limited amount of time each week to make herself available to schedule ​30 minute and one hour advisory sessions via phone, VoIP, or video conference. If you would like to schedule a consultation with Joy, purchase the session securely online using the buttons at the right of this page. You will be contacted within 48 hours of payment to complete scheduling. Please be sure to form your thoughts as best you can and have your questions ready so that you can make the most of your session with Joy once it is scheduled!
