Marijuana’s Big-Money Marley Brand Makes a Splash (Seattle Weekly News)

Last week, NBC’s Today Show giddily announced an exclusive: Privateer Holdings, the Seattle marijuana company long acclaimed locally for its straight, corporate image and Ivy-League-educated bosses, was launching “the first global pot brand” based on the legacy of Bob Marley.
…Kleiman adds, the American government could surely, if it chose, take an interest in what Privateer is doing here and around the world. Even if the company is adhering to local laws, it is still “conspiring to commit a federal crime,” he says.
