On this episode of Cannabis & Tech Talks, your host Charles Warner, Editor-in-Chief of Cannabis & Tech Today is joined by cannabis activist & industry pioneer, Andrew DeAngelo. DeAngelo shares how he launched one of the first legal cannabis dispensaries in the world, Harborside in Oakland, CA, with his brother and cannabis revolutionary Steve DeAngelo. Together, they conceived and implemented many cannabis industry standards, such as lab testing and child-safe packaging.
He shares his experience as an activist for patient rights and details how everyone can get involved with one of his current projects: The Last Prisoner Project. The non-profit works to redress the past and continuing harms of unjust imprisonments for non-violent cannabis offenders. LPP was founded out of the belief that if anyone is able to profit and build wealth in the legal cannabis industry, those individuals must also work to release and rebuild the lives of those who have suffered from cannabis criminalization. The Last Prisoner Project is a social impact partner for the Emerge Virtual Cannabis Conference.
