  1. Empowering Communities and Promoting Sustainability in the Cannabis Revolution with Jason Starr Carly Puch 35:54

Join a new episode of Consciously Cannabis series for an enriching discussion with the Chief Impact Officer at On the Revel, Jason Starr. In this episode, we shine a light on the company’s efforts to empower communities hardest hit by cannabis prohibition. Jason shares brilliantly about the importance of bridging the knowledge gap in the legal cannabis market, fostering educational events like business conferences and community block parties, and supporting entrepreneurs with past criminal records due to cannabis convictions. Jason shares a personal journey that transitions from public school teacher to human rights lawyer, deeply intertwined with the fight against the war on drugs and the quest for justice and education within the cannabis policy sphere. Jason highlights the connection between the fight for cannabis legalization and the queer community.

This conversation also ventures into the realm of sustainability and the crucial role it plays in the growth of the cannabis industry. We acknowledge the innovative measures taken at the grassroots level and discuss New York’s two-tier market system aimed at nurturing smaller businesses. The dialogue further extends to the myriad opportunities beyond cultivation and retail, highlighting the indispensable role of ancillary businesses. As we explore the implications of cannabis legalization on public policy and restorative justice, we underscore the ongoing learning process and the necessity for community support to navigate and flourish in the dynamic landscape of the cannabis industry. Tune in for an episode that’s not only about gaining knowledge but also about finding community and inspiration in the ever-evolving world of cannabis.

Jason Starr has over 15 years of experience as an attorney, educator, and strategist in the fight for human rights. His practice is multi-dimensional and spans the public, nonprofit, and social entrepreneurship sectors — employing litigation, public policy advocacy, and organizing -— and is rooted in meaningful partnerships with people and communities. Jason is also a seasoned cannabis policy advocate and Chief Impact Officer at On the Revel, the parent company for a collection of curated educational and networking experiences democratizing information for those interested in the regulated cannabis industry and most impacted by the War on Drugs.

As I stumbled through the perils of answering the ultimate question, "what do you want to do with your life?" I knew somehow my answer would incorporate helping others. This translated into paths that, when I tuned into the universe, I realized were very connected. (Funny how that always happens!)

People are complicated, messy, and layered with identities. So is this space. I am a meditation enthusiast that sits in quietness every morning and a lover of blasting 90's hip-hop at full volume. I'm a gym rat and a yoga instructor. I am both learner and a teacher. We are all many things. Together we can make them all work.

I love to share all the things I'm learning along the way. Learning how to be your most fabulous self but being honest about how damn hard and messy it can be along the way lets you speak your truth. It allows you to best use your voice for the causes that matter to you. Let's get healthy and change the world together!
