EP. 16 - SINSEMILLA STORY (with guest Tom Alexander)
Play • 1 hr

In our latest episode of Cannthropology, we welcome to the show Tom Alexander—founder and publisher of the legendary cannabis cultivation publication Sinsemilla Tips whose magazine and grow shop in Oregon were among the primary targets of a massive DEA sting operation in 1989 intended to shut down cannabis cultivation in the US known as Operation Green Merchant. Alexander opens up to host Bobby Black about how Sinsemilla Tips got started and rose to prominence, how the government raided and shut down his businesses, and what happened in the fallout of those raids.

The World of Cannabis Museum Project presents: Cannthropology—the potcast that explores the history of cannabis culture one artifact and interview at a time. Hosted by World of Cannabis executive director and marijuana media icon Bobby Black. In each episode, Bobby chooses a different item(s) from the museum's collection of around 500 rare antiques, artifacts, and artworks, and welcomes a different guest to help him explore the item’s significance and place in cannabis history.
