Join us for a night of conversation with Steve DeAngelo, proclaimed “the father of the legal cannabis industry” by Willie Brown, the 41st mayor of San Francisco. Steve will be discussing and signing his important new book, The Cannabis Manifesto: A New Paradigm for Wellness, on Wednesday, September 30th, at 7:00pm. Munchies will be on hand, and Salt and Straw is right down the street for your post-event ice cream!
With a cultural critic’s eye peering through the lens of social justice, The Cannabis Manifesto explains how cannabis prohibition has warped our most precious institutions—from the family, to the workplace, to the doctor’s office and the courtroom. In calling for a realistic national policy on a substance that has been used by half of all Americans, this essential primer will forever change the way the world thinks about cannabis, its benefits, and the laws governing its use.
Steve DeAngelo has been a cannabis activist, advocate, entrepreneur, and educator for almost four decades. His creation of the landmark Harborside Health Center, the largest medical marijuana dispensary in the world, set the standard for providing safe access, responsible use, and lab-tested, high quality medicine. In 2010, DeAngelo launched the cannabis industry’s first investment and research firm, The Arc View Group, one of the top ten angel investment groups in the U.S.
