Cannabis & Tourism, Transformative VIP Access, Horrible People on Planes

We start the show by dishing on some horrible things people do up in the air. Both Glenn and producer Jeff Polly share what they think are abhorrent and weird behaviors while traveling on airplanes.

Then we explore the world of Cannabis tourism and its effect on Colorado.  Rather than sensational, it can be educational; and one company is transforming how cannabis culture is perceived. Through the Lighthouse Cannabis Project, http://lighthousecannabisproject.com/, tourists see firsthand how cannabis is grown and harvested with an extremely rare tour opportunity. What surprised us most is how normal it all seemed. They’re also partnering with governments on cannabis education as jurisdictions across the country want to learn more.

But this group also owns CID Entertainment, http://www.cidentertainment.com/, and we speak with CEO Dan Berkowitz to learn more. They provide VIP access opportunities to concerts around North America, and also have a cool new business that makes them and touring musicians money while making fans super happy.

Also on the show is Kobi Waldfogel who is spearheading on the ground efforts for the Lighthouse Cannabis Project, and also happens to be a great tour guide too.

This show is a must listen!
