Legal cannabis has proven to be a major economic driver in pivotal U.S. states and is expected to continue to extend across the country
LOS ANGELES, Calif (PRWEB) January 04, 2016
MG magazine, a glossy monthly magazine covering the cannabis industry, will be available to consumers on newsstands nationwide beginning Jan. 8, 2016. Until now, the magazine has been available only to industry insiders as it covered the marijuana business by staying abreast of news, legal analysis, financial forecasts and emerging trends essential for businesses, investors, and potential entrepreneurs.
“Legal cannabis has proven to be a major economic driver in pivotal U.S. states and is expected to continue to extend across the country,” according to mg publisher Darren Roberts. “Americans not only are engaged, but are taking a proactive approach to an increasingly relevant and vital topic. We provide in-depth coverage through the eyes of insiders in the know. mg provides information that allows individuals and companies—including those in states eyeing legalization—the information they must have to be successful, profitable and informed.”
As the voice for the legalized cannabis industry, MG not only addresses current and future needs of business professionals, but also galvanizes advancements in policies that support the growth and success of the industry as a whole. Each issue delivers insight about the people, products, and politics that advance or impede the market sector.
Roberts is no stranger to politically sensitive industries. As CEO of the globally recognized AVN Media Network covering the adult entertainment industry for over 16 years, Roberts is well accustomed to the struggles and hurdles that the cannabis industry must overcome.
“I’ve spent the last two decades developing business-to-business publications for a variety of industries, and I have never seen such overwhelming consumer interest in a trade magazine,” he said. “This is very much a lifestyle industry and the lines that separate consumers and professionals are thin.”
Cannabis activist Aaron Justis appears on mg’s January cover. Justis got involved in the industry in 1997 and since then has fervently advocated policy reform. He currently serves as president of Buds & Roses, a medical dispensary in Los Angeles, and sits on boards of directors for several organizations including the National Cannabis Industry Association.
“Justis is a devoted believer in the industry and the patients it supports. He is a role model we are proud to feature on the cover of this significant issue,” said mg managing editor Tom Hymes.
MG will be available at Barnes & Noble and other select retailers beginning Jan. 8, 2016. For information about stocking the magazine or obtaining a direct-to-you subscription, visit mg-https://www.mg-magazine.com/subscribe/
