IPW 2019 Rising Star of the Year – Erica Daniels

Erica Daniels is the mother of a child with autism who is determined to give her son and family the highest quality of life possible. Erica’s life changed and gained a new purpose when her son was diagnosed with autism in 2007.

Erica Daniels is an internationally recognized medical cannabis activist, autism advocate, author, public speaker, and devoted mother.
