Ed Rosenthal is a leading cannabis horticulture authority, author, educator, social activist and legalization pioneer.
As one of the co-founders of High Times Magazine, Ed writes the much loved and long-running cannabis column, “Ask Ed.” The column continues to be published internationally.
“Ed Rosenthal’s Marijuana Grower’s Handbook”, has become the definitive marijuana cultivation resource, inspiring millions to learn the best marijuana cultivation techniques. His book is the official course book of Oaksterdam University, and is still the only cannabis horticulture title ever to be reviewed by the New York Times.
Ed is the founder of many successful socially responsible cannabis organizations, including; Quick Trading Publishing, focused on continuously researching and publishing the most accurate, up to date cannabis education, Quantum 9, a marijuana consulting and technology company, Green Aid: The Medical Marijuana Legal Defense and Education Fund, a 501(c)(3), the International Cannabis Business Conference, the Wonders of Cannabis Festival and The Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum in Amsterdam.
As an internationally known cannabis activist and advocate, Ed views marijuana law as a crucial social issue: one that hit him personally. In 1999, Ed was appointed, “Officer of the City of Oakland”, directed to cultivate cannabis for patients. Three years later, the federal government shut down his city supported facility. Ed was arrested, and put on trial twice for marijuana cultivation in federal court. Ed’s highly publicized trials shifted public opinion in favor of state medical marijuana laws, highlighting for many the fact that marijuana laws have become more harmful to society than the behavior they were intended to regulate.
Steve DeAngelo is a national cannabis leader who has inspired millions throughout his four decade career as a cannabis activist, advocate, entrepreneur and educator.

Steve is also Co-founder and President of the ArcView Group, a company formed to introduce investors to the cannabis community, and vice versa. To attract the best, brightest and most motivated entrepreneurs and investors for the next innovative American industry, Steve and his staff operate the ArcView Angel Investor Network. Steve believes cannabis is medicine and that it should be used to further personal wellness and not be used as an intoxicant.
As an accomplished speaker, Steve DeAngelo can be found at events and conferences around the world inspiring others through his work. His unique sense of style, his commitment to his community and his passion for cannabis make him both a role model and a pop cultural icon.
