this issue: CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’
56 | California
California is the sleeping giant in the recreational cannabis industry. Marijuana Venture takes a deeper look at the Golden State, through the lenses of legislation, advocacy, cultivation and retail.
58 | Legislation
Three attorneys — Michele Brooke, Kyndra Millerand Nedra Ruiz —address the multitude of potential changes facing California's medical and recreational cannabis markets.
64 | Advocacy
Two advocates from vastly different backgrounds discuss the War on Drugs, the impact of changing legislation and the future of the industry. Steve DeAngelo is one of the most recognizable figures in the marijuana space, having developed Harborside Health into the pinnacle of medical dispensaries; Stephen Downing was a police officer for decades, where he saw the impact of the Drug War up close and personal, giving him a valuable perspective on the importance of ending prohibition.
86 | Cultivation
California's famed Emerald Triangle has produced some of the best growers in the world, but what happens when legalization sweeps the nation and underground experts are forced to go mainstream or lose their livelihood? Cultivators throughout California are looking toward the future with regards to marketing and more.
98 | Retail
California was the first state in the U.S. to adopt legalized medical marijuana, but a lack of statewide regulation has allowed dispensaries to operate unchecked. Knowing that stricter regulations are coming to the medical market, as well as the impending 2016 election, dispensary owners are bracing for major changes.
