THC Godfathers / The Godfather of Cannabis Industry & His Cannabis Manifesto

last year

With the effort to legalize the weed that start to gain steam, and with medical #Marijuana now being recognized as a major healthcare issue, the question is no longer whether cannabis will be legalized and when, the most important questions are; How will it be legalized? and how will it be regulated and marketed, by whom and in what manner?

In "The Cannabis Manifesto", The Godfather of the Cannabis Industry charts a clear, well-reasoned course to bring #Cannabis responsibly into the mainstream of American life. The longtime cannabis activist looks beyond the question of if and when to examine the real challenges facing society as it brings this heretofore illegal substance out of the shadows.


So, Who Is The Godfather of Cannabis Industry !

He is the leader of the $22.5 billion annual cannabis industry, the founder of the largest medical cannabis dispensary in the world, the "Harborside Health Center" and other several iconic cannabis businesses and organizations like "Steep Hill Laboratory", the "Arc View Group", and the "National Cannabis Industry Association".

He has been featured by the New York Times, Fortune Magazine, the Washington Post, CNN, the Associated Press, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, BBC, and many others. He was awarded the High Times Lester Grinspoon Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition for his four decades of activism in the cannabis reform movement.

His name Steve DeAngelo (Born June 12, 1958), he is a pioneering cannabis entrepreneur, activist, author, and on-screen personality. His creation of a model medical cannabis dispensary coupled with his extensive knowledge as a lifelong activist made him one of the most respected speakers in the cannabis and hemp industries.

His creative projects include "The Cannabis Manifesto", the Discovery Channel #Documentary series "Weed Wars", the premiere episode of CNN's Inside Man with Morgan Spurlock and "Ask Steve" with Steve DeAngelo on Green Flower platform.

Steve DeAngelo & The Cannabis Manifesto

DeAngelo is a figure with decades of cannabis activism under his belt. He wrote The Cannabis Manifesto for two main groups of people:

  • People who are already in favor of cannabis reform, to give them all the latest science, the most up-to-date history, and the best arguments, so that they could really be effective activists.

  • People who are taking a look at cannabis in a serious way for the first time, to enable them to get a realistic and balanced picture of this plant.

His Cannabis Manifesto is written with intelligence and empathy, DeAngelo has crafted eight simple maxims that comprise his Manifesto:

  • Cannabis is not harmful, but prohibition is.
  • Cannabis should never have been made illegal.
  • Cannabis has always been a medicine.
  • Choose cannabis for wellness, not intoxication.
  • Cannabis reform doesn’t harm communities, it strengthens them.
  • Cannabis should be taxed and regulated as a wellness product.
  • Cannabis reform is a social-justice movement.
  • Legalization cannot and will not stopped.

He makes a compelling case against the folly of cannabis prohibition and the harms it produces, but more than that, his book is essentially about social equality, the right to self-determination, anti-violence, and misguided policies of the past that damages lives and wastes precious resources.

Yet this is not just theory. "The Cannabis Manifesto" is a clear and well-structured #Canna-Culture book, that can be read as an entrepreneurial memoir, business book, or recent social history.

WOW.... that is a 304-page book. This will be additional information on my part. It will take time, of course, but I will surely read it. Thank you!


Be careful. Of course, I love Steve but it all comes with high “activist”/fanboy level. A quick look at his Twitter gives you an insight in his average tone.

But... we need more Steves to speed up worldwide legislation. 🔥


sorry, what do you mean by High Activist/Fanboy Level?


It’s his regular tone, there’s lots of levels of “fanboyish” smugness involved.

That is not a criticism btw, activists are louder, more repetitive and that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Every campaigning needs a healthy portion of activists, rallying the crowds while a larger base of advocates does the further base level promotion work.

One of the great things about Steve is that he stuck to his activism, and thus also stayed grassroots engaged. He stuck to his initial tone, and that is found through all his work. He could long have made it to the higher echelons lobbying with politicians and canna companies, be less visual.

We need more Steves spearheading the public debate with the crowd, but at the same time [in the US] we also need more leaders to “level up” and start more organizations. We need additional orgs to NORML, with nationwide high profile.


Now i understand.


I second the motion. Please expound @unnamed.


Yeah, I know. Thanks. Getting infos doesn't mean you need to mention names.


Read his book in three days.

Wow, you are really manifesting for truth and revealing the truth for legalization
