Here’s what recreational cannabis legalization in California actually means


This week Alicia and I kicked off a new segment centered around our general curiosity called ELI5, or Explain Like I’m 5, where we have a chance to take a complex topic and invite a guest expert in to break it down for us like we are five years old. For the first segment, we invited Steve DeAngelo, founder of Harborside Health Center, the largest medicinal cannabis dispensary in the U.S., to discuss the upcoming legalization of recreational cannabis use in California on January 1st.

Steve has been at the forefront of cannabis advocacy for several decades, literally writing the book on cannabis: The Cannabis Manifesto: A New Paradigm for Wellness.

How will legalization affect the general public? Will the new law change impact medicinal cannabis users?

Steve gives us an in-depth look at the changes we can expect, and how his dispensary, Harborside Health Center, will adapt.

Explain Like I’m Five is presented by the Commonwealth Club, the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum, intent on finding truth and turning it loose in the world.
