This week’s Benzinga Cannabis Hour featured Last Prisoner Project’s Steve DeAngelo; Hoban Law Group’s Bob Hoban; and The People’s Dispensary’s Christine Delarosa (link to video below).
Co-hosts Patrick Lane and Javier Hasse guided the conversation across a wide variety of topics. Here’s a breakdown of what was discussed.
Steve DeAngelo, Founder, Last Prisoner Project
Steve DeAngelo is perhaps one of the most renowned leaders in the sector. Touted as the “Father of the Cannabis Industry,” the LPP founder is indeed a multihyphenate: speaker-activist-advocate-entrepreneur-educator.
He kicked off the conversation by making a case for a hemp-based economy.
“We can wear hemp clothes. We can eat hemp foods. We can start driving this hemp economy forward,” he said. Why? The environment depends on it.
