You've heard of cage-free eggs, but what about cage-free cannabis?
My first guest is Adam Vine, the 39-year-old co-founder of Cage-Free Cannabis, a group that works with legal cannabis businesses to repair some of the damage done to minority communities during the War on Drugs. Based in Los Angeles, Cage-Free Cannabis has partnered with two Seattle-based pot businesses - Fine Detail Greenway and Lux Pot Shop - to produce a special marijuana strain named after Seattle-based band Flavr Blue.
Profits from all sales of the Flavr Blue strain will go toward Cage-Free Cannabis's social justice initiatives, which include the creation of a council to help Seattle's cannabis industry foster opportunities for those communities hardest hit by the drug war. Listen as Adam tells the story of his group's founding and explains why its work is so necessary.
