Although there is a strong cultural stigma around cannabis as a drug for outsiders, criminals, and other undesirables, it is far from justified. Cannabis has been used by many highly functioning, contributing members of society, as well as some of the world's foremost thinkers.

Some of the most notable achievers who are also admitted cannabis users and/or advocates include Carl Sagan, Bill Gates, Martha Stewart, President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Morgan Freeman, Michael Bloomberg, and many, many others.

Poseidon Asset Management believes that cannabis been demonized for too long as a danger to society and a "gateway drug" (read more on "the myth that will not die").

We hope that through both education and example, cannabis can be perceived more evenhandedly in the future--as a medicine for some, and yes, a vice for others. But a vice accepted by an open-minded, liberated society--especially in light of the very real dangers of legal, freely available or easily-accessed prescribed substances.
