Importantly, Cannabis Now also debuts its Hall of Fame inductees featuring some of the top cannabis pioneers and change-makers on whose shoulders the 40 Under 40 participants stand. These cannabis icons paved the way for the industry long before the herb was fashionable—or legal—and risked arrest or worse in order to help ensure the truth about cannabis was being told. Honorees include superstar outlaw Willie Nelson; Grammy-winning rock star Melissa Etheridge, godfather of medical cannabis Dr. Raphael Mechoulam; revered cultivator Ed Rosenthal; rap living legend Snoop Dogg and more.

“After more than a decade of publishing Cannabis Now, I’m excited the magazine is highlighting these entrepreneurs who have worked so hard to build booming businesses in this exciting space,” says Cannabis Now Founder and Publisher, Eugenio García. “Those featured are an integral part of the cannabis industry.”

“It’s undeniable that Cannabis Now‘s inaugural 40 Under 40 list includes the likes of Bella Thorne, Kevin Durant, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Seth Rogen,” says Executive Editor Richard Pérez-Feria. “These cultural powerhouses—through their actions and words—have all made a significant impact on the legalization and, indeed, the long overdue normalization of cannabis in this country. We couldn’t be happier with the results.”
