The Fight to Save Mom & Pop Weed Farms
Whenever cannabis and capitalism collide, legacy weed farmers find themselves caught in the crossfire—trapped between hyper-capitalized mega-grows with corporate lobbyists and the corrupt government bureaucrats who do their bidding. In a just-published article for Rolling Stone, ace cannabis reporter and longtime friend of the podcast Mary Jane Gibson details how a shady backroom deal pulled the nug out from under California's old-school weed growers. As a result, a confluence of extinction-level-events now threatens to bring down the state's entire legal weed system via an impending market crash. But fret not—the Hempire has only begun to strike back. Mary Jane Gibson joins us for this episode of Moment in Weed, which includes a ceremonial smoke sesh.
