What do French ocean pioneer Jacques Cousteau, US Army General George S. Patton, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt all have in common? They all have grandchildren involved in the legal cannabis industry! But why would the descendants of families of such notoriety want to associate their family's legacy with weed?

In this episode, host Brit Smith talks to members of three heirloom families who have moved into cannabis; CEO of Green Meadows Farms Bob Patton, founders of SeaWeed Naturals Phillippe and Ashlyn Cousteau, and CEO of Lucida Club Jack Roosevelt. The famed entrepreneurs discuss how and why they got into marijuana, how they handled the stigma when they came out in support of legal weed, and what they believe their ancestors would think of their foray into the cannabis industry.
