Advocacy, Community Organizing, Marketing | CNNC 2020


Melanie Rose Rodgers is an advocate for plant medicine, entheogenic plants and fungi. Prior to working in cannabis, Melanie worked in advertising, marketing, nonprofits and in healthcare insurance. Disenchanted by the private healthcare insurance system, Melanie looked for natural alternatives for improving health and wellness and found passion in medical cannabis. She started her own company Influential X, dedicated to education, advocacy and social responsibility. In 2019, Melanie helped pass two laws to expand medical cannabis access in Colorado. She is one of six petitioners behind Initiative 301, a petition-led ballot initiative which led to the historic vote in Denver becoming the first US city to decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms.

There is a psychedelic renaissance emerging. More and more people are looking for natural alternatives and there's more research now than ever exploring the health benefits of psychedelics.
