Part 3 of 8
Following two years of 70-hour work weeks to bring safety to patients and those who serve them, Greta's husband— less motivated by the movement than his wife— grew tired of subsidizing her nonprofit work and demanded that she gets a job.
As Greta's voice became more engaged with educating, she was concerned about the DEA raids and the safety of those around her, so she felt an ancillary business could provide her a level of protection. Along with attorney & drug reform activist Rachel E. Kurtz (one of the first people in Seattle to open Greta’s eyes to the social injustices currently present in our legal system), they helped to establish The CARE Wellness Center; a naturopathic clinic whose doctors would consider cannabis to qualifying patients in their treatment plans. The business came to be known as The Hope Clinics, and quickly grew to a chain of clinics serving western Washington.
In 2015, The Hope Clinics were sold to medical professionals who are working hard to take the clinics to an even higher level of cannabis care.
