Marijuana Gold Rush

Marijuana Gold Rush is different from the other documentaries and reality shows that are about to be released because of the way, director/producer/writer, Marc Shaffer, has shown the emerging medical marijuana not in its infancy, but trying to make that paradigm shift to the next level. What Shaffer has done in a Rashomon-style is to portray the many players on both coasts and in between, revealing their ideas and perceptions on where to go with a budding industry while the cameras were rolling unobtrusively in the background. . . . → See: Marijuana Gold Rush


Medical Cannabis and the California Crisis

SB 420 places the burden of creating a viable system of access to medical cannabis on the counties, particularly the county departments of health. To meet and exceed SB 420’s guidelines, and turn what is ostensibly a new administrative and budgetary burden into a health, safety and financial boon for each county, Ahimsa International proposes the statewide implementation of a county-run program, which will generate much needed county revenue to help offset the devastating effects of the state budget crisis. . . . → See: Medical Cannabis and the California Crisis

Strain Hunters Expedition

Strain Hunters are people that can’t sit still for too long. After completing the Malawi expedition in 2008, Arjan and myself began to think about the next mission.

After much thinking and talking we selected a few “top-spots” on our list, and started gathering information and ideas. . . . → See: Strain Hunters Expedition
