THE SHOP KEEPERS Yvonne DELAROSA Founder, 99 High Art Collective Twitter: @Yvonne_99

BIO: Credited as a Cannabis Pioneer for creating a paradigm shift in marijuana dispensaries, international actress and activist Yvonne came to the world of medical Marijuana when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Disheartened by the lack of respectable dispensaries she created 99 High Art Collective in Venice Beach, an upscale dispensary not only visually opulent, but that served as a sanctuary for healing and spiritual enlightenment. Years on, Yvonne’s mother is cancer free and her now 99 High Tide Collective in Malibu is blossoming. She is a passionate activist whose activism roots grew from her many encounters with the late cannabis activist and author Jack Herer. GREEN ENVY: 99 Venice Beach was heralded as one of the best dispensaries in CA by Rolling Stone Magazine, LA. Weekly and High Times Magazine, Yvonne brought the 99 brand to Malibu as the 99 High Tide Collective which has been recently recognized as one of the top three “Best Dispensaries in all of California” by MedicalMarijuana.co.uk, one of Great Britain’s largest advocacy groups.
