They Said It

Words of note from thought leaders, newsmakers and influencers in the cannabisphere.




  • As we speak to legalization and the legal piece of it, [President Biden] has always supported the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes —  White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre
  • I believe [President Biden] has displayed a regressiveness for cannabis policy. And if there’s a regressiveness toward cannabis policy, it’s likely to be worse on anything else — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)
  • Finna get stoned AF and throw this first pitch at the Pirates game — Rapper Wiz Khalifa before attending a game played by his hometown Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team
  • I think when kids get on that, I think it causes a lot of problems and then, of course, you know, they can throw fentanyl in any of this stuff now. — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, addressing legalization
  • It wasn’t so much smoking pot for pot’s sake as it was being part of the crowd. It’s amazing how it’s changed. You know, when I grew up, it was just kind of a rebellion thing.—Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates on his weed-smoking days
  • Weed is just like that fucked-up cousin nobody talks about. But they invite him to every fucking family function ’cause he’s fun as fuck. — Rapper, actor and activist Method Man, o ering his current theory
  • We’re focusing on retail in our third fund. We think access to the product is what will be important going forward, rather than supply, which is overbuilt. — Poseidon Investment Management co-founder Morgan Paxhia, speaking on the “High Returns: Investment Strategies from Cannabis Capital Titans” panel at the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference in Chicago
