Mike Branom scours the nation’s newspapers for the latest developments in the world of cannabis, with new markets coming open (Oklahoma voters approve medical marijuana!) and doors being closed (Arizona appeals court says concentrates and extracts are illegal).
Branom’s background in journalism and policy – politics is put to good use by Agate Biosciences, where he is the Director of Communications and Government Relations. He also assists with the writing of license applications for Agate clients and is in charge of the media outreach for the Pasadena-based company. Mike comes from a family familiar with cannabis, as his uncle and cousin are cultivators while his sister has done social media and marketing for the MMJ industry.
