I am Rod Kight. I live in Asheville, North Carolina where I practice law, raise five kids, play music, advocate for cannabis legalization, and enjoy life.
I aim to do several things with this blog. First and foremost, I want to convey my thoughts about cannabis. In particular, I intend to focus on business and legal issues. But, I won’t limit myself to those aspects of cannabis. I will also discuss health issues; newsworthy events; funny, interesting, and/or outrageous stories; history; politics; and other cannabis-related items of note. Secondly, I intend to promote myself as a marijuana lawyer. This is a business tool for me which I also hope will be helpful to my past, present, and future clients. I intend to promote products, organizations, and individuals that I believe are worthy of promotion. Finally, I want this blog to be both entertaining and a vehicle for cannabis advocacy. Marijuana should be legal and I want this blog to be a part of the larger legalization movement.

Please be mindful that possessing, using, distributing and selling marijuana are all federal crimes and that this blog is not intended to give you any legal advice, much less lead you to believe that marijuana is legal under federal law. Please also note that even though marijuana is illegal under federal law, you will need to pay federal taxes just as though you are a legal entity. This is true even if you are a state law not-for-profit entity.
