Exempted from having to go to high school, Glenn Peterson instead went to a work-study school which he says was a wonderful place. He was involved in politics nearly from the jump- having a friendship with Mark Udall and the Udall family. An eagle scout, the concept of being employed made no sense to him. Glenn says he’s pretty conservative and essentially libertarian but politically he considers himself a cell of one. Glenn is completely enigmatic. When he mentions that he knows how to throw blades and catch them without cutting himself…in his case, that’s a fact as well as an extremely well imagined metaphor. After trying his hand at being a private investigator, he demonstrated a knack for business through real estate, his success eventually led him to cannabis.

And it's fascinating and it's, it's one that I want to know more about when I see your face. When I, when we sat down for dinner my probably a year and a half, two years ago now. I was like, what? Who's that guy? I want to know that guy. Well, I, I had an interesting upbringing I guess that was very
Speaker 4: heavily involved with boy scouts and was an eagle scout and was three or four sports each year and at the end of my sophomore year in high school I got elected to a student advisory council and then from that council to Estate Student Advisory Council and the chairman of that council was a full voting member of the State Board of Education in Massachusetts.
