Kevin Murphy, Chairman and CEO of Acreage Holdings

On this historic day, The Green Rush is publishing its 100th episode! After launching the podcast two years ago, Anne, Lewis and Nick want to express their gratitude to all of our dedicated listeners who have stuck with us!

To treat our audience, we are celebrating with a very special guest, Kevin Murphy, CEO of Acreage Holdings. We think an interview with one of the top CEOs in the cannabis space is the perfect treat as we set forth towards our next 100 episodes.

Kevin Murphy is arguably one of the most powerful leaders in cannabis having built Acreage Holdings into one of the leading MSOs driving the U.S. cannabis industry forward. We sent Lewis to the Acreage offices in NYC to chat all things Acreage including the acquisition arrangement the Company announced earlier in 2019 with Canopy Growth and where that deal stands today. We also discuss how Acreage is using its political might to drive reform to cannabis banking regulations, the Company’s “house of brands” strategy and how the SAFE Banking Act could transform the industry.

Don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!

Congressional Cannabis Day Part 1 – Capital Markets and Banking Panel

This week and next on The Green Rush we have a special treat for our listeners! Back in May, the KCSA team held the inaugural “KCSA Congressional Cannabis Day Forum” at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. to discuss the legal and regulatory headaches of operating in the cannabis space. As part of the event, KCSA gathered a host of some of the brightest minds in the industry for a series of panel discussions aimed at addressing critical issues relevant to the sector, including capital markets and banking, CBD/hemp, opioids, veterans’ issues and social justice.

In the first installment of this four part series, we hear from our Capital Markets and Banking Panel. We were privileged to have with us, Evan Eneman, co-founder and CEO of MGO | Ello Alliance, Codie Sanchez, Managing Director of Cresco Capital Partners, Edward Fields, Chair and CEO of Dionymed, Nick Kovacevich, CEO and Founder of KushCo, and Moderator Tim Seymour from CNBC. What ensues a tremendous discussion on the banking and regulatory hurdles that cannabis businesses must endure and how that affects investor activity in the space.

So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
