The Green Rush team explores with Phil the current cannabis landscape in the U.S., in what ways investors are helping to grow the industry, and how cannabis is disrupting other spaces such as the pharmaceutical industry and the alcohol industry. Additionally, with legalization underway in Massachusetts and Canada, the Green Rush team and Phil explore how these decisions will affect the U.S. cannabis space and upcoming elections.
