Natacha comes with a rich and diverse background which includes a proven record of successful counseling, developing and negotiation on behalf of her clients. She came to cannabis after practicing for several years as an immigration attorney who noticed a large number of clients across the industry facing deportation and permanent family separation as a result of low level, non-violent cannabis convictions. Concerned by the trend, Natacha set out to gain a better understand of the underlying causes and connections. What she discovered on this personal journey led Ms. Andrews to seek avenues of advocacy and sensible drug policy reform.
In December 2019 she began to gather a group of attorneys around the nation resulting in the formation of the National Association of Black Cannabis Lawyers (NABCL). Today, NABCL works with attorneys from all over the United States to help advocate for equitable, inclusive and reparative justice for those intentionally harmed by the War on Drugs as well as those who continue to be detrimentally affected by our fragmented US cannabis system.
