Snapshot from an interview with cannabis leader Jason Lauve. Jason and I have been friends in the industry for 7 years now and we both have a goal to educate the masses while pushing cannabis into the logical and respected light it deserves. Jason is a co author of the Hemp bill that passed in CO and was adopted at the Federal Level which became the US Farm Bill allowing farmers in the US to grow Hemp for the first time in 80 years! Way to go Jason! http://www.lauve.com/
