Matthew C. Aragón
Hi, I'm Matt! I'm a cannabis public relations assistant, writer, student, and self-proclaimed drug nerd. I've also been involved in harm reduction education and drug policy reform activism since the age of 15.
As one of few in the United States to start a high school chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, I provided fact-based education pertaining to risk reduction practices, the war on drugs, mass incarceration, and more to my peers. In 2017, I was invited to the 2017 International Drug Policy Reform Conference where I spoke on a panel regarding the future of drug education curriculum in K-12 schools. In 2018, I also helped to found the New Mexico chapter of DanceSafe, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting health and safety within nightlife and electronic dance music communities.
Over the last few years, I've taken somewhat of a step back from my activism roles to focus on school. I'm currently studying population health and chemistry as an undergraduate student at the University of New Mexico. When I'm not studying, working, or attending events with DanceSafe, you can usually find me in my back yard admiring my cacti garden or in my room binge-reading Wikipedia.
While currently sparse, the "Articles" page will be home to any & all content written by me. I've also included a "Resources" page, which will act as a repository for books, websites, films, and other content that I find useful, interesting, or fun. If you ever want to talk, feel free to reach out through any platform listed on my "Contact" page. I'm always available and happy to answer questions, help with research, or talk about life and anything else you wanna discuss.
