57. Gov. Newsom Adviser Nicole Elliott: Live from WeedWeek’s Recharge Event
This week we bring you an episode recorded live at WeedWeek's Recharge event. Alex and Donnell interview Nicole Elliott, senior advisor on cannabis to Governor Newsom, in the office of business and economic development. She talks with us about her experience ushering in legal cannabis in San Francisco, the challenges of California regulation, social equity and Governor Newsom's vision for the future of cannabis in California.
Certain of the indignities visited upon American citizens by the current Presidential administration are more difficult to take than others. One of the latest is "guidance" insisting that immigrants who work in legal cannabis may lack moral character.
"[A]n applicant who is involved in certain marijuana-related activities may lack good moral character if found to have violated federal law, even if such activity has been decriminalized under applicable state laws." The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services made this assessment last Friday, on the nineteenth day of April.
How can such character assumptions be acceptable to the communty of cannabis? How can we function with a worldview incapable of seeing that a hempcrete wall demeans us all. Cannabis functions to bring people together.
Do you feel a lack in moral character?

Spectacularly badass as the old ways were, the new reality of a gig in weed seems with each passing month more about working in environments of comfort and consistency. And when the new world isn't working Apple-smooth for us moderately compansated Western employees? That work can be frought as any illicit bud enterprise. But the stress plays differently.
Yes, they’re going to write books about this time. But for now we’ll have to settle for words and sentences on a digital page.
If you watch this week's video featuring the owner an esteemed Los Angeles dispensary called The Green Dragon, you may note that Tarsha S. has a lightness of hair and face and affect that contrasts the emotionally dark struggles native to 2019 independent entrepreneurship.
The lightness doesn't stop Tarsha S. from clearly articulating the complexities of being who she is in this specific cannabis moment.
