In the article: “Exclusive: Ed Rosenthal, The ‘Ganja Guru,’ On Home Cultivation and the Cannabis Industry,” Ed talks about growing plants as way to reclaim pleasure, enjoyment, and a healthier product. He also talks about why it’s a matter of social justice.
According to the article, Rosenthal proposes more and better training of the industry’s workforce as a way to reverse social inequity:
“If they really wanted to achieve social equity in this industry, what they should be doing is funding internship programs and entrepreneurial training,” he says. “If what you really want to do is to achieve progress, to move society at large forward, what you need to do is to make the entry into the marketplace not as arduous and costly as it is now and give tools to producers to improve their business. This is a business and everyone who wants to have it should be licensed and pay taxes.”
