According to the release, Marangon beats that drum daily in between outreach events for seniors and writing blogs purposed to dismantle the preconceived notions around cannabis.

In the release, Kirkland deputy mayor Jay Arnold added, “We’re delighted to welcome Evergreen Market to Kirkland. Their location, in our booming Totem Lake neighborhood, is part of an emerging, vibrant city center with shops, restaurants, and entertainment.”
