YOUR BEST LIFE: Kandice Hawes-Lopez - Community Outreach Director, The Farmacy

Kandice Hawes-Lopez is the Director of Community Outreach with a focus on seniors and military veterans for the Farmacy which is part of the Glasshouse Group =


Kandice founded Orange County NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) in 2003 after losing her financial aid due to a possession charge.


She currently serves as the chapter's Executive Director holding monthly meetings, lobbying, and speaking at educational events. Kandice was named one of “Orange County’s 100 Most Influential People” by the Orange County Register in 2014 and named one of the “100 Most Interesting People in Orange County” by the OC Weekly in 2015. In 2016 Kandice graduated from California State University Fullerton with a degree in Political Science and Public Administration.

BTW she does all this while along with her husband raising two boys. In my day, we called women like Kandice – SUPER WOMEN.
