Producer Kris Lotlikar brings almost two decades of experience being involved in marijuana politics at a strategic and tactical level. Having helped start Student for Sensible Drug Policy over 15 years ago, Kris has developed strong ties with a generation of activists who have gone on become the leaders in marijuana reform organizations and companies nationwide. Kris is also an expert on business and entrepreneurship, successful running the country’s leading provider of renewable energy with thousands of clients including 144 of the Fortune 500 companies. He was one of the first to seriously evaluate marijuana markets and produced the first ever market report on the marijuana industry in 2011. His experience with both the politics and economics of marijuana, along with his deep connections across the industry and movement, gives him a broad and critical perspective when discussing current events.
