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 Kris Krane is back for a new episode with special guests Armani White and Sean Berte, Owners of Firehouse, a Boston-based cannabis dispensary set to open in 2024.

Armani and Sean join us this week to build upon Kris’ Forbes column, “What’s Killing Social Equity In Cannabis? Lack Of Banking,” to discuss their mirrored journeys as cannabis consumers-turned-advocates, their advocacy work and the accompanying challenges, the duo’s path to cannabis retail, ownership and raising capital, impacts of the Social Equity Fund and Safe Banking, and the social equity-focused retail dispensary, Firehouse, which is poised to disrupt the way companies select and showcase cannabis brands for retail sales.

Today’s episode marks the second installment of the new edition of the Green Rush that follows Kris’ latest Forbes column. In these episodes, Kris will welcome a guest, typically someone who is quoted in the column, to further discuss and flesh out the narrative.
