FOCUS: The Cannabis Health and Safety Organization

Lezli is the founder of Foundation of Cannabis Unified Standards (FOCUS). Established in 2014 as The Cannabis Health and Safety Organization, FOCUS is a federal, 501c3 non-profit that addresses the many shortcomings in quality, safety, and consistency that have become evident with the explosive growth of the global cannabis industry. Having effectively navigated policies in both the highly regulated pharmaceutical industry and the inadequate patchworks of state cannabis regulations as the first vertically integrated cannabis business owner in Phoenix Arizona, Lezli realized the only way to build a truly sustainable, legal, global cannabis marketplace was to develop cannabis specific voluntary consensus standards and third-party accredited third-party certification that would serve as the common language and barometer for cannabis quality, safety and commerce internationally.
