Informed. Honest. Effective.

Medical Marijuana Advocacy



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

Community Resources

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

Financial Assistance

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

501(c)(3) Charity

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 can speak directly to your physicians about the program, and we have advocates that speak Spanish and Polish. They are available for phone consultations for patients or people with questions.

We offer discounts to Veterans or patients on SSI/SSDI to ensure money isn't a barrier to their medicine.

Please consider donating to our 501c3

The money we collect is used to help patients that are Veterans or on SSI/SSDI to pay the State fees associated with getting their card. We are constantly working with cannabis companies in Illinois and Missouri to provide free medication. If you are interesting in helping or know someone that is please have them reach out to us.
