The cannabis industry has made remarkable strides of late, and the first-ever High Times 100 celebrates the efforts of the men and women currently shaping the marijuana landscape. While the remarkable contributions of pot pioneers throughout the 20th century are largely responsible for the freedoms and successes we now enjoy, this list focuses on the people who are actively influencing the cannabis world. As such, we’ve limited the HT 100 to the living, with an emphasis on current contributions to cannabis. Here are the 100 most influential growers, extract artists, dispensary owners, product makers, activists, politicians, scientists, media members, celebs and sports figures in the cannabis world.
Tim McGraw—Founder & CEO of Canna-Hub
Tim McGraw began developing and managing real estate 20 years ago, but more recently planted his flag in the sweet-spot niche of the cannabis space. As the founder and chief executive officer of Canna-Hub, McGraw and his team have secured millions of square feet of commercial space for cannabusinesses. We like that McGraw actively seeks small, economically challenged communities in which to create jobs and bolster needy economies. For this and other reasons, the CEO took a High Times Trailblazer Award in 2015.
