Educate yourself with Steve DeAngelo’s Cannabis Manifesto
They call him the father of the cannabis industry, and for good reason. Steve DeAngelo wrote the book on legalizing weed, quite literally. The Cannabis Manifesto serves as a chronicle of his life in the cannabis industry, a history of the war on drugs, and a roadmap for making marijuana mainstream. As the owner of Harborside, California’s dispensary gold standard, and the founder of ArcView, a cannabis investment firm, he’s been at the forefront of legalization efforts in California and beyond. He’s also a hell of a story teller. You can hear more from Steve when our podcast, Rec’d: One Year on California’s Cannabis Frontier, debuts later this summer, but we’d recommend copping his book first.
