Episode 48: Weed Hacking

On this episode I chat with my good friend Eric Marsch. He shares his story about hacking his high school network and how that’s shaped who he is today as a leader in the fight for marijuana legalization. As a young obedient student, Eric learned that the system works for some people. In his frustration, he learned how to unlock unique system capabilities in his school network and distribute them to the students. He learned at a young age how empowering it is to give power back to the people, as well as the consequences from those in charge who want to keep their centralized power structure. After experiencing a number of injustices, he’s now leading the charge to legalize marijuana in Wisconsin.
