Cannabis Wire Launches

Today, Alyson Martin and Nushin Rashidian formally launched Cannabis Wire, “a news startup that will document the end of a prohibition and the birth of an industry” — a site that focuses “on the intersection of cannabis and business, tech, health, and criminal justice (among other issues).” Alyson and Nushin received initial funding and a fellowship at The Made in NYC Media Center by IFP through a Brown Institute Magic Grant, and we join them in celebrating the launch of an incredible site. Their first feature is published in partnership with The Guardian, and profiles Responsible Ohio’s mascot, Buddie and the legalization battle in that state. Their site will soon become the destination for people interested in marijuana legislation in the U.S. Congratuations to Alyson and Nushin!
