Few marijuana reformers in California have the credentials of Chris Conrad. He was one of the co-authors of California’s landmark Prop 215 that began the medical marijuana era in America. He is the acclaimed author of numerous books, including his most recent, “The Newbie’s Guide to Cannabis & the Industry” with Jeremy Daw, his partner at the popular marijuana news site, The Leaf Online.

I sat down with Mr. Conrad at the 3rd Annual International Cannabis Business Conference in San Francisco to discuss the implementation of California’s new legalization law, Prop 64. Mr. Conrad was a major proponent of the initiative and we also discussed the effect of the campaign on his personal life and career.
