Marijuana has helped countless people around the world cope with various diseases, and yet it remains a controversial drug. Millions have been pushing for its legalization for many years now, and those who believe in the plant have collected a few victories, and there are now a number of states in America where recreational or medicinal marijuana can be purchased. With any new change in how the government views a certain substance, there are sure to be plenty of entrepreneurs who launch businesses based on the new opportunity that has arisen, and it’s no different when it comes to weed. One person who is working on changing how the world views marijuana—while also making a few bucks off the trend—is Melissa Etheridge, who has launched her own namesake brand (Etheridge Farms) of cannabis-related items. In a recent conversation with me, she discussed why this was a good time for her new business and how it has helped her through health issues, as well as in her music career, which is already one of the most impressive in history.
