THE SUMMER 2021 ISSUE

Our biggest issue yet! Features look at: how design of dispensaries and products helps not only marketing but normalizing cannabis; an interview with Shawn Gold of Pilgrim Soul about his work exploring creativity and cannabis use, and; an interview with Smith professor Carolyn Melly about how a life-threatening diagnosis for her son led to her anthropological research. In addition to regular features we have interviews with Mark Barnett, Pioneer Valley Cannabis, and Vanessa Jean-Baptiste.
