We Choose to Not Use the Term “Medical Marijuana”

While you may have heard medical cannabis referred to as medical marijuana, at Harborside we do not use that term. William Randolph Hearst utilized the word marijuana, as did his political allies, to promote harmful stereotypes about both the Mexican and Black populations. Smokers of marijuana were frequently caricatured as crazed and violent black men or lazy, thieving Mexicans.

We use the term medical cannabis rather than medical marijuana because we choose not to associate the positive healing properties of cannabis with the negative, racist undertones of the word marijuana. To use that term would passively support the wrong and hurtful notions of Hearst and his allies, whereas we believe that cannabis is medicine, and is meant for people of all colors and walks of life.

Harborside brand is formerly known as Harborside Health Center, and our subsuduary locations, The Harboride Health Center Oakland, and The Harborside Health Center in San Jose. We are no longer using the term Hea;th Center but remain commited to the values of Health and Wellness that have come to represent us in the mefical cannabis community.
