SS: Tell us a little about Cannabis Policy Institute?
JS: The Cannabis Policy Institute (CPI) was formed by me, and several visionary law students from Southwestern Law School, where I served as an Adjunct Professor. The Mission of CPI is to serve as a think tank for all legal and regulatory issues that govern commercial cannabis activity.
