If it were not for Debby Goldsberry’s efforts at least in part- it’s possible that there would be no cannabis industry. There are not too many people of which that’s true. Debby has been a fierce warrior for change for over 30 years. She toured the country with Jack Herer and others espousing the virtues of hemp and legal cannabis.
