Ed Rosenthal is one of the few stoners who’s become a celebrity because of being a stoner. This Dude is amongst the most righteous marijuana activists of all time and if there were a Stoners Hall of Fame he would have to be the first inductee. Ed is total proof positive that people who smoke weed can be productive, this man has been very busy, especially on behalf of the movement to reform MJ laws and working with the state’s weed growers, dispensaries, and local governments to standardize and implement the delivery of pharmaceutical grade cannabis to patients.
Ed’s conviction is legendary and court cases too many to list, it’s like he’s been the scape goat for the MJ movement but in the entire time his sentence has been more about navigating through court procedures, politics, bureaucracy and legal bull-shit than dealing with incarceration. However, the legal-defense expenses were huge and required an Internet campaign called Green-Aid to assist in funding. Legal battles wage on….
Meanwhile, Ed took up promoting the cause of “Overgrow America” which is so cool, plus he’s the founder and owner of Quick Trading Company in Piedmont, California. Quick Trading publishes the yearly Big Book of Buds Calender, the Big Book of Buds series, Marijuana Buds for Less, Cultivating Exceptional Cannabis, Closet Cultivator, Dank: The Quest for the Very Best Marijuana, Joint Rolling Handbook, Marijuana Garden Saver, and Marijuana Herbal cookbook among others.
