Shea Gunther, the creative mind behind MJ Today Media and the Marijuana Today podcast is this week’s guest on The Green Rush! In addition to his role as the unfailing Program Director for the Green Rush, Shea is himself a podcaster, writer, activist and entrepreneur who, from behind the scenes, has for decades helped drive the cannabis industry forward.
As an activist, Shea had a hand founding the first chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy back in 1998, and is currently leads up MJToday Media, a publishing company focusing on creating content for legal marijuana business nerds. He’s recently concluded his run as the host of “Marijuana Today Daily” but still does produce the weekly show “Marijuana Today“.
This week, Anne is away so our host Nick decided to sit down with Shea to chat about the current state of media covering the cannabis industry and what stories they’d like to see garner more attention in this space. They also cover the growth of Shea’s home cannabis market in Maine as well the inherent frustration that comes with slow moving progress for cannabis legislation.
Don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
