Green Rush LA: Medical Cannabis Confusion in the Wild West of Weed
Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research Press Release:
[On]March 11, 2014 5:30-7:00 p.m. [at HSU] BSS 162, Native Forum Room, Nathan Donahoe presents an in depth and behind the scenes look at cannabis entrepreneurship in Los Angeles over the last six years when there were more medical marijuana collectives than Starbucks. Unregulated and uninspected cannabis was freely sold in stores, dabs (concentrated hash oil) exploded on the scene and some collectives sold large “quarter pounds” of cannabis. In response, Los Angeles voters recently passed Proposition D which regulates and limits medical marijuana dispensaries within the city. Nathan describes the role regulation plays in shaping the southern California cannabis market as well as its significance for future growth in the cannabis industry.
Nathan Donahoe represents Cannabis Consulting Group, a Silicon Beach based cannabis think tank. Nathan advises the City of Los Angeles on cannabis policy and the National Institute of Health’s funded Cannabis, Health and Young Adult Study.
