It's Just A Plant: Pivoting into Cannabis

BY AL OCHOSA
@ VOL 22 ON APR 11, 2017

Pot, weed, ganja, oh my!  Al Ochosa explores his dynamic career and lifestyle shift from the traditional to the outright revolutionary.  He shares the hurdles and kudos he has encountered along the way, how the world in general is changing its stance on cannabis, and what it took to decide to pivot in such a different direction.  In just a few short years, the conversations and the business surrounding cannabis have moved off the street corners into executive boardrooms.  Millions of dollars have been made and taxed, thousands of jobs have been created, and more patients now have greater access to their medicine.  Awareness is growing, but Al hopes greater acceptance isn't far behind.
