Caitlin A. Mitchell
Managing Editor/Medical Marijuana Advocate
If not for Caitlin’s childhood diagnosis of ADHD, she wouldn’t have been working as the managing editor for AmericanMarijuana– that’s for sure. Because of this, she is then determined to learn and discover the healing properties of herbs to aid individuals suffering from chronic and acute ADHD and other mental illnesses around the world.
With marijuana being legalized as an alternative treatment for a variety of health conditions, including pain and mental health problems, she’s never been more determined to push her passion over the roof. In fact, she’s one of the individuals behind the approval of the first medical marijuana dispensary approved in Altoona, PA back in 2017.
