His primary focus is not the bottom line.

“Is there a higher purpose and does it have to do with John?

My family collapsed.”

Cannabis helped him rebuild. “I’m finding purpose every day, and it all originates from the medicine of this plant,” he said. “Do I see a window where we can help some families through the innocence of this amazing plant? It’s a no-brainer to me. If I break even, people are getting paid, we’re putting money into the community, and people are loving their jobs…”
