Weed + Grub examines how artists are essential in shifting cannabis culture from the fringe to mainstream. This panel is a deep dive into art and effective messaging surrounding cannabis legalization. What role do music, film and theater play in legalization? How can we discuss the damage that the War on Drugs has wreaked on communities of color, while inviting people to enjoy the positive aspects of the plant? Does legal weed need to lighten up?
