With the international cannabis celebration day 4-20 Friday, we invited founder of Harborside Health Center Steve DeAngelo back to discuss the effects of legalization on the industry.

DeAngelo has been at the forefront of the fight for legalization for the past several decades, and his pioneering vision has led to international recognition of Harborside Health Center in Oakland as the gold standard for dispensaries in the industry. Now that Harborside has incorporated recreational customers in addition to their robust medicinal clientele, the business model has changed as many dispensaries find themselves working through a number of unexpected issues.

Listen to the podcast below for more on how legalization has affected the culture and business of weed in California.

Explain Like I’m Five is presented by the Commonwealth Club, the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum, intent on finding truth and turning it loose in the world.
