We first spoke with Bruce Perlowin the CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC symbol HEMP) back in July. You can listen to that show here. This week we circle back and find out more about first publicly traded company to focus on building and promoting the hemp industry.
This is an interesting time for the industry and Bruce’s perspective is always insightful and informative. He was dubbed the “King of Pot” by the FBI more than two decades ago and the CNBC show Marijuana Inc that featured his life story has been viewed more than 18 million times. He has since been dubbed the Godfather of Pot Stocks having started the first publicly traded company in the medical marijuana industry, Medical Marijuana Inc. (Symbol MJNA) .
Hemp really can help heal the planet. How is it that a plant that can feed you, clothe you and give your shelter is still illegal in many states. For more than a decade I’ve been on the front lines of the legalization movement. I worked with many of the very first publicly traded companies focused on medical marijuana and hemp.
