Over the past 9 years, humanitarian Andrew Kramer, owner of Zen Healing of West Hollywood, has become well-respected for pioneering the dispensary debate in the State of California. He has always fought for patients’ rights. Zen Healing is committed to protecting the rights of patients and doctors. They do this by advocating for safe and legal access to medicine for all appropriate therapeutic uses. The Department of Veterans confirmed that this medicine is “a legitimate course of treatment for soldiers returning from the front lines” in July 2010. Zen Healing offers Veteran patients that provide proof of military service with a gift of appreciation: a free glass container with a free quarter of high-quality medicine every harvest. The harvest happens every three months. Kramer believes that patients have the right to participate in their own recovery and that doctors have the right to recommend any medication at their own discretion.
Every Saturday since 2006 at Blessed Sacrament in the heart of Hollywood, California, Zen Healing sponsors a barbecue to feed the homeless. They begin serving food at 10am and go until noon or when they run out of meals – whichever comes first. Word of mouth has brought more and more homeless – recently about 150 plates were passed out. Kramer explains that “according to Los Angeles Almanac, there are an estimated 254,000 men, women, and children that experience homelessness in Los Angeles County. That’s 254,000 mouths to feed. My hopes are that we can continue to feed more and more of those mouths.”
Joe Klare of The 420 Times wrote about Zen Healing’s efforts telling of Zen Healing’s community service efforts. He wrote that “all the great things dispensaries do and what they add to a community” is swept under the rug given very little press or acknowledgement. He even found after completing a “Google News search of ‘Zen Healing Collective’ that ZERO stories are returned about the program”. Lastly, Klare proclaimed how “[f]eeding the homeless is undoubtedly a great human-interest story, the kind news outlets love; so why the lack of coverage? And not just from written media; TV stations like to put videos and stories online as well, yet nothing mentioning this dispensary and their feeding of the downtrodden”.
The more coverage Zen Healing’s community service efforts receive, the more people in the community will be effected. Join the community service trail Zen Healing has blazed for us. Kramer opened Zen Healing to help the patient community and he explains that he and Zen Healing are “only seeking to make a difference in the community in more than one way.”
