Sat in on Leslie Hennessy’s KSVY radio show, featuring wine and cannabis cultivator Mike Benziger of Glentucky Family Farms in Glen Ellen. I mentioned who SVCG is and what we’ve accomplished: the city’s first dispensary, latest news on a possible second dispensary and why competition is good for the city, patients, and adult users alike. Mike agrees, “there’s plenty of room for a second dispensary in town”. I mentioned how much the city has made in tax revenue so far, and Mike added he could see that revenue doubling with a second dispensary.
There was also talk of cannabis tourism, and the plight of the legacy small farmers, many of whom are going out of business due to over regulation/taxation.
All in all, a good show. This edited version is 13 minutes long.
