Meet CEPC'S newest Board Member: Rubi Wahhab Nicholas



Rubi Wahhab Nicholas MBA/MS, MS,


Rubi is a 26 year healthcare professional working in the fields of geriatrics, long-term care, and end of life care. Her work brought her a better understanding of the uses and power of medical marijuana and she became an advocate for its passing for a variety of conditions. A Pennsylvania native, Ruby is also the executive director of her local NORML chapter in Lancaster, Pennsylvania - her lobbying efforts generated the most lenient decriminalization law in the entire state. She continues to advocate for marijuana legalization and recreational use only while simultaneously committing reparation to those populations inappropriately and negatively affected by previous marijuana prohibition laws. Rubi has 2 adult daughters, is a nationally recognized standup comedian and former winner of Nick @Nite’s Funniest Mom in America, she’s delivered a TEDx talk, and is also running for office in her home state of Pennsylvania in the 97 district in 2022.
