Ever wondered what it’s like to work for a marijuana company that is making a positive impact by focusing on hiring minorities and people with disabilities? Introducing GFIVE Cultivation — one of the rare minority-owned cannabis cultivation companies in Las Vegas. My first encounter with co-founder Larry Smith was at Dame Dash’s birthday party Thursday, May 3, 2018. Teaming up with childhood friend Shawn Holman, the two were determined to create a cultivation business that represents their concerns for raising awareness of minorities in the culture.
It was a long work day, and I walked up to a group of stoners outside, hoping they’d accept me. They had not one, not two, but three prerolls in rotation. These things were fire, and the glass tip sealed the deal. There’s just something about inhaling the smoke through a sturdy crutch that I love. I had to know more about the brand! As it turns out, Larry Smith Jr., the lovely gentleman who was before me in rotation, was standing next to his father, Larry Smith Sr., the brains behind the operation.
