FORA.tv Studios, producers of original, compelling video programs, today announced the debut of the video “Marijuana 101: Lessons from Oaksterdam” featuring an interview with Dale Sky Jones, Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University, an educational institution which provides training for the cannabis industry. The video is the third installment in the FORA.tv Studios original video series “Pot Goes Public.”
In addition to her role at Oaksterdam University, Jones is also the Chairwoman of the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform and has emerged as a vocal advocate for the legalization of marijuana in California and the United States. In conversation with Michael Montgomery, reporter and producer at The Center for Investigative Reporting and KQED Public Radio, Jones compares the lifting of alcohol prohibition in the 1930s to the current shift in attitudes toward cannabis as seen in recently enacted state laws. Watch the entire interview on FORA.tv here.
The interview marks the third installment in the “Pot Goes Public” video series from FORA.tv Studios. The first video in the series, “Profits from Pot: Investing and Legalization,” features a conversation with Christian Groh, COO and co-founder of Privateer Holdings, a private equity firm focused on the cannabis marketplace. The second video “Breaking the Drug Taboo” features an interview with Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group and member of the Global Commission on Drug Policy. Additional videos will be added to the “Pot Goes Public” series in the coming weeks.
