Rank #3: Soma's Sacred Seeds
Since Soma's first joint, he has found cannabis to be one of the most positive forces in his life. Soma started growing cannabis in 1971 in southern Vermont. He owned and ran a vegetarian restaurant and bakery. As he became more aware of his diet, a deeper knowledge of ecology and its effect on the environment came with the territory. This led to his interest of growing cannabis in an organic eco-friendly manner. Although marijuana laws are never fair around the planet, he refuses to give up his right to have his sacrament and medicine constantly near him in the form of clothing, food, plants, paper and smoke. Soma wrote a book titled Organic Marijuana Soma Style including some new insights on the most up-to-date options for organic marijuana growing.

Rank #5: “Farmer Tom” Lauerman, Founder of Farmer Tom’s Collective and Terpworks
Like many of us growers in the industry, Farmer Tom experienced the sting of being a cannabis cultivator during the so-called war on drugs…his collective was raided in 1999, and he was busted for growing well over 400 pot plants.
That was then, and this is now. As legalization pushes forward, so does Farmer Tom. Now a legal organic grower in the great state of Washington, Tom prides himself on being both an activist and an educator – he is all about the legalization and normalization of the cannabis plant. He speaks several times a year at industry events and educates on cultivation panels, and has even taken his message to the local news. Tom’s passion for education has even led to a ground-breaking relationship with a federal agency. Working with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Tom helped give the feds an inside look at how a real-world grow works so that rules to protect workers can be established in this budding industry.

Mitch worked as an alcohol researcher for years, and then began teaching an undergraduate course on drugs and human behavior.
