Last week we announced a strategic partnership with our friends at Cultivated Media. 

In the coming weeks, Grown In subscribers will begin to have access to a daily newsletter feed that summarizes everything you need to know about the U.S. cannabis industry. 

Launched last fall by longtime industry insider Jay Rosenthal and journalist Jeremy Berke, Cultivated Daily chronicles the deals, regulatory changes and personalities driving the cannabis industry each and every day.

In the meantime, we are pleased to introduce our weekly United States of Cannabis Podcast. 

Earlier this week, Jay Rosenthal of Cultivated News and Brad Spirrison of Grown In sat down with Florida expert Sally Kent Peebles to discuss all things sativa and sensimilla in the Sunshine State. 

Here are the headlines: 

  • Peebles believes “things are about to explode” in Florida due to the availability of licenses known as Marijuana Treatment Centers. 
  • She added that Florida’s Marijuana Treatment Center licenses “are the most valuable in the world” because it gives the holders the ability to open as many dispensaries, cultivation centers and as many processing centers as they want. 
  • The Florida Supreme Court by April 1st is expected to rule in favor of putting Adult Use cannabis on the ballot for this year’s November Presidential Election.
  • While conventional wisdom suggests that this would help bring would-be voters of President Biden to the polls, Peebles says that in very red parts of the state like Jacksonville she sees individuals very eager to vote in favor of legalization.
