.2019. Educated Alternative 

Educated Alternative is a Medical Marijuana Advocacy Center with locations in Oak Lawn, Illinois and St. Louis, Missouri.


Our center was created to address the most pressing problems found in the cannabis community: lack of education and funds.

Our goal is to provide information and financial assistance to patients in need through a series of charity driven programs and seminars.

  • We are a not-for-profit corporation and a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that can provide receipts for taxes for your donation.

  • We provide application assistance, doctor and vendor referrals and one-on-one consultations to current patients or people interested in the Illinois or Missouri Medical Marijuana program all at no cost.

  • We are also available to speak directly to your physicians about the program if they need more information.

  • We have advocates that speak Spanish and Polish available for phone consultations for patients or people with questions.

Our doors are open and walk-ins are always welcome!
