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 Nick Opich and Anne Donohoe are back for a new episode with special guest Kris Krane, Director of Cannabis Development for KCSA Strategic Communications. Kris joins us this week to discuss his recent Forbes column that dissected the HHS call to reschedule cannabis and why this is a big deal. In this conversation, Nick, Anne and Kris discuss the potential implications that rescheduling will have for business, culture and social equity within cannabis, as well as Kris’ perspective on how this will continue to unfold, including how it may affect capital, banking and M&As.
