Greetings my friends,
The High Holidaze are upon us and 2018 has come to an end. It’s been a strange, exciting and frustrating time of change and growth in the regulated cannabis industry. Business in California feels like it’s taken a bit of a momentary step backward as it adjusts to the new laws, licenses and challenges that come with mainstream compliancy. In other parts of the world, like Malaysia, the death sentence is being abolished thanks to a cannabis crime related case. South Korea just legalized medical cannabis and in the US, states like Oklahoma and Missouri have also legalized medical cannabis and some people living there never thought that would happen.
Last month in Las Vegas we threw an epic MJ BIZ Con after party at the Palms Place with Emerald Magazine, and Supreme Organics, Space Food Sticks, JuJu Royal, The Original Jack Herer, Source CBD, CWCB Expo and PieceMaker all helped us to do it. There was a hot tub on the balcony, an open bar, a blunt rolling station with organic Jack Herer flower, edibles, Hawaiian Barbecue, a chocolate fountain, OG prerolls, and celebrities like John Salley, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi from Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset”and “Teen Mom’s” Farrah Abraham. Ta Smallz performed “The 420 Roll Up” and DJ Legend and DJ Fraggle Rock were there keeping the music going all night long.
On Veteran’s Day I was Inducted into The Hollywood American Legion Post 43. It was a very cool ceremony and I was really honored to be part of it. I’m excited about the possibility of working with The American Legion to do cannabis outreach and advocacy for veterans. We have Colin Wells back in this issue with a new article he wrote about The Veterans Walk and Talk. Former NASA Scientist, Professor Dale J Chamberlain also contributed this issue detailing all the parts of the plant, and Siouxsie Q was our correspondent at The LA Politicon event, which featured Kathy Griffin and Eddie Izzard.
It’s exciting to be championing on to a new year and we couldn’t keep doing it without you all. Thanks for everything, enjoy the holidays and we’ll see you in 2019.
As always, smile at your budtender, tip your delivery driver, and know your dose.
