On this week’s episode of Budding Report, we are joined by college student and cannabis activist Imran Mir as well as Will Car of Genesee Nutrition and Sunrise Supplements. The guests join our hosts Charles Horton, Melissa Nasits and Christian Shaw, MD, PhD, as we discuss how cannabis employment in the US is currently climbing and poised to surpass computer programmers in the coming years.
Imran is a 24-year-old college student currently fighting back against a cannabis conviction. He was recently released on probation and brought his fight into the mainstream. He is currently on speaking engagements aimed to shed light on legal issues related to cannabis and hopes what sharing his own experience will help have a positive impact on both individual perceptions about cannabis conviction as well as future legislation regarding personal marijuana use.
Will is a returning guest and the founder of Genesee Nutrition and Sunrise supplements. As a college graduate with a degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering, he played professional basketball in South America. While there, he realized his mission of bringing the highest quality dietary supplements to market in America, utilizing the rich, nutritional benefits of hemp and CBD. Will’s recent experience in viral marketing, and the pitfalls thereof, bring him back to our show to tell his story of an Amazon coupon costing him $75,000.
