On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
It’s been more than a year since Initiative 71 passed in Washington, D.C., making the city the first on the East Coast to legalize the recreational use of marijuana and its growth in private residences. In that time, a number of entrepreneurial locals, dubbed ‘cannapreneurs’, have opened up pot-focused businesses in the District, despite the legal murkiness of local rules. Those businesses range from companies selling cultivation equipment to the locally famous ‘Kush Gods,’ who gifted marijuana laced goodies in exchange for cash donations– until police intervened. Kojo looks at the risks and rewards of making weed your business in D.C.
