In this week’s episode, we’re joined by Stephen Murphy, Founder of Prohibition Partners, who lets us in on the significance of cannabis and his journey through the industry.
We start off by diving into a piece on a report from LADBible that states only 35% of Brits support cannabis legalization. Stephen believes that the public is still neglecting cannabis because they are unfamiliar with the plant and it is seen as a negative influence on society. Through Prohibition Partners, he clarifies, “we have a chance to really catch up on this wonderful plant and really get to understand the benefits cannabis can do for us in society as a medicine, food, ingredient, and material.”
The podcast continues with Stephen discussing the relationship between cannabis and technology. Specifically, he mentions the high demand for the tech around the plant in the B2B marketplace. “There’s already [an] explosive demand for cannabis, and companies and markets are trying to respond as quickly as possible and trying to be successful in tech platforms to facilitate that demand.” He adds that these tech services and platforms are essential, especially for his industry, because they help provide security, transparency, and trust for the people.
We dive deeper into Stephen’s interest in spreading awareness and reliable information on the importance of cannabis. He believes he will have a much “wider impact for generations” by presenting the case for the legalization of cannabis.
As the episode continues to explore Stephen’s experience of technology, leadership, and corporate life, we also discover his goals and hope for cannabis in the future.
