Privacy Policy

The purpose of Move the Movement is to empower people to become connected by providing a forum/venue for sharing personal experiences with medical cannabis. Wouldn’t it be cool if collectively we could “Move the Movement” by assembling the single largest warehouse/repository of stories/experiences about the use of medical cannabis.

Move the Movement hopes that the information it gathers will help empower people with their own healing. With access to stories of people with similar conditions to yours, you will be able to learn from others experiences and connect with them.

Ultimately, Move the Movement hopes that the strength of the information that’s gathered will be used to push for in depth research, law reform and ultimately better and more informed treatment options.

The success of Move the Movement depends on your willingness to share your personal experience online. Protecting your privacy is critical to us and we are committed providing you with the safest online experience possible.

Move the Movement is a non-profit organization that is subject to the Personal Information Protection Act. This privacy policy summarizes the privacy practices at Move the Movement.
