Tawanna Morgan is representing a young man, Addae Simmons, who started a marijuana-laced baked goods business in his high school, and is currently serving a felony sentence for his entrepreneurial actions, due to being convicted in Fulton County for marijuana manufacturing, sales and possession.  Like most young people, Addae did not believe marijuana was a big deal and did not understand the consequences of his actions.  As such, Addae has been tasked by his sentencing judge to share his consequential indiscretions with other high school students, with the objective of helping youth understand the implications of their actions, particularly those involving marijuana.  Addae is doing a pilot presentation on February 9th,  3:00 pm at ULU Cafe located at 2036 Sylvan Rd SW, Atlanta, GA 30310 in East Point.  Addae is looking for high-school students and community members who mentor, teach or otherwise lead high-school students to attend and give feedback, as he fine-tunes his presentation.  Please try to attend (or send a representative) and bring youth if at all possible – and spread the word. You may contact Tawanna at 470-707-7756 with any questions regarding this presentation.
