I am co-founder and president of 4Front, a leading investment and operations firm in the legal cannabis industry. I’ve had the opportunity to work on regulatory and business strategy with cannabis business operators across the United States and globally, and am a frequent speaker at cannabis industry conferences and events around the world. I’ve spent 20+ years working in the cannabis industry. Prior to my work at 4Front, I worked in Washington to reform our nation’s misguided drug and marijuana laws, first as Associate Director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) and then as Executive Director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, which I’m proud to have helped build into the largest student organization in the United States. When I’m not helping end cannabis prohibition or building a new industry from its ashes, you can find me spending time with my family and young children. While I outwardly exude cannabis green, I bleed New York Mets blue and orange.
