Welcome to the Green Rush, a KCSA Strategic Communications Production, a weekly conversation at the intersection of cannabis, psychedelics, the capital markets and culture. 

This week Anne Donohoe and Kris Krane are back for a new episode with special guest Adam Smith, Founder of Alliance for Sensible Markets. Adam joined us this week to talk about all of the latest developments around interstate commerce in the cannabis industry including recent legislation passed in Washington State and California Governor Gavin Newsom’s push to lead on this issue following a letter he recently sent to his state Attorney General back in January. 

Adam walks us through all facets of these developments including what it means for MSOs and single state operators, the likelihood the federal government would allow interstate commerce to proceed and ultimately how it will benefit consumers in the long run. 

Adam also previewed his upcoming webinar set for Wednesday May 10th where he, alongside Matt Lee, the General Counsel to the California Department of Cannabis Control, Rafi Aliya Crockett, the Commissioner with the D.C Alcoholic Beverage (*and cannabis*) Control Board and Marc Hauser, Founder of Hauser Advisory, will be discussing these issues in greater detail. We’ve included a link for our listeners to watch the webinar in our show notes. 

So sit back and enjoy our conversation with Adam Smith, Founder of Alliance for Sensible Markets.
