Introducing The CannaBeat Podcast
We’re approaching two anniversaries: the 6-year anniversary of Proposition 64, the California voter initiative that legalized both for profit and adult use cannabis; and, the 26-year anniversary of Proposition 215, the ballot measure decriminalizing medicinal cannabis. It’s time to explore past, present and future of California cannabis. Regulatory lawyer Delia Rojas and business attorney Jay Purcell are excited to announce a new series, the CannaBeat Podcast. The podcast will include conversations with legacy operators, entrepreneurs, community group leaders, legislators, local and state regulators, reformers and the people shaping the California cannabis landscape.
The CannaBeat Podcast kicks off with a quick history of the twenty-years separating Prop. 215 and Prop. 64, a two-decade period of grey markets and instability. Next, in Episode 2, we talk with longtime Sonoma and Mendocino County cultivator and consultant, Josh Abrams, about how Prop. 64 affected his grow, and other cannabis businesses in the region. Josh wasn’t alone in voting against Prop. 64, a decision he does not regret.
The CannaBeat Podcast seeks insight into the varied experiences with the California cannabis industry, including both “winners” and “losers” in the market; those working for expansion and against expansion; small companies with long histories and large companies with no history at all; and, the people charged with regulating the heterogenous industry. By discussing what’s working and what’s failing for the people running California’s cannabis economy, readers and listeners will better appreciate the conflicting outcomes of Prop. 64 and what’s ahead for the Golden State.
