Play • 34 min

Tony Budden, who together with long-time friend, Duncan Parker, co-founded Hemporium, the first cannabis company in South Africa, over 25 years ago. Focusing on hemp, he has been advocating for the plant and its many uses ever since. With the recent rise of legalisation around the world, Tony was approached to move into the big business of big cannabis. In this episode we look back at Tony’s last quarter century of activism and his inner struggle of whether or not to leave it all behind.
