Our Story

The founder of Cannabis Talk 101, Chris Wright, aka Blue, and the Pot Brothers at LawMarc and Craig Wasserman shared something special: a passion for educating, advocating and defending members of the cannabis community. With Chris providing the platform, through radio, they would discuss the benefits of marijuana as well as the laws engulfing it. It wasn’t until early on in 2018 that their team became complete with the spontaneous addition of entrepreneur and radio entertainment personality, Joe Grande. Together they have embarked on a mission to spread the truth about cannabis while guiding and connecting industry professionals along the way.

Christopher Wright

For more than a decade, Christopher Wright aka Blue has been involved in all aspects of the Cannabis industry; from medical cannabis dispensaries and collectives to the controversial cannabis movement and its cultivation. He watched as the plant gave his father hope and a better quality of life during his fight with lung cancer. Before his father passed away, Blue made a promise to make an impact in the cannabis movement. Keeping his promise to his dad, Blue created platforms with the primary purpose to educate the community about the benefits of cannabis. In 2015, he established the Cannabis Talk 101 radio show, and has been one of the highest sought after speakers in the cannabis industry ever since. Blue’s commitment to his father and the movement is apparent in his Mission Statement: to increase awareness about the positive benefits of cannabis, educate those who believe in it, and convince those who don’t.

Joe Grande: To spread compliant information to the best of our ability. Keeping people up to date on breaking news and educating them on what is right and wrong in the industry.
PBAL: Along with providing legal advice to help listeners, together, we utilize the platform to encourage others to come out of the green closet and show that cannabis consumers are not just stoners, lazy or losers – we come from all different professions, backgrounds and lifestyles.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE SHOW?

Blue: I really appreciate the way the four of us play off of each other. We have this unique bond that’s really special and fun and there is never a stale moment! We have the ability to pick up each other’s pieces and make a good team, a great comradery.
Joe Grande: It feels like we have been friends for 30+ years! We treat each other like brothers, were able to make fun of one another and not get all sensitive.
PBAL: We all respect each other and never step on toes. We knew right from the beginning we were creating a brotherhood.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE SHOW?

Cultivation:

Recreational: 21 years or older can grow up to six plants enclosed and not visible.

21 years and older can only smoke in a private residence or private business.

WHAT’S ARE TOUGHEST CHALLENGES THE INDUSTRY FACES?

Blue: The stigma for sure. We have always been fighting to break through. People are always judging others who smoke or use cannabis like it’s a crime…it is not criminal! We must unite as an industry and have a voice in order to make a positive impact.
Joe Grande: Explaining the compliant way to process money and explaining the proper way to utilize banking, it is a business and needs to be treated as such. I deal with so many clients that feel afraid and that fear is unnecessary. WE CAN HELP!
PBAL: The regulations in Calif. Are a big hurdle and are creating problems for mom and pops, boutique, families, generations of growers and people who have been involved in the industry for decades and have been doing it properly. What is legalization exactly because it is not written clearly.
Blue: Inside and out of CT 101 we are realizing there is a learning curve and people all of the United States and beyond are just uneducated, uninformed and not understanding specifically what their rights and the laws really are.
PBAL: Not to mention, the media glamorizes legalization in California and people come here with false hopes and information on the laws, legalization and even usage around cities and counties.

WHAT ARE THE TOUGHEST CHALLENGES WITH CT101?

Blue: Getting into bigger markets and stations, especially because most companies/radio stations won’t and/or don’t support the cannabis community. We overcame a huge hurdle in Orange County and are so appreciative of the love we have received.
Joe Grande: Explaining the compliant way to process money and explaining the proper way to utilize banking, it is a business and needs to be treated as such. I deal with so many clients that feel afraid and that fear is unnecessary. WE CAN HELP!
PBAL: We can’t sat F*** on FM radio.

Blue: I’ve formatted a free flow of information. Callers call in live and ask questions or provide their concerns and/or comments about the industry. It was important to create a platform that provided not only accurate education but that our show has made an impact and provides good results for everyone. Essentially, we are the pioneers of creating media for cannabis.
Joe Grande: Blue offers the Cannabis Talk Network an educational platform, The Pot Brothers at Law, Marc & Craig Wasserman offer legal advise and I offer compliant information regarding processing for the cannabis industries. We all do this separately and come together to bring you Cannabis Talk 101.
PBAL: Other shows do not have and/or offer the legal voices and presence.
PBAL: We have had the privilege to touch politicians, attorneys, doctors, Senators, rappers, children, parents, veterans, athletes, brands, professionals and amazing people from all walks of lives and have created a special alliance. We are blessed to able to share the same passion with everyone in and out of the cannabis industry and how the plant touches and affects everyone.
