Hi, my name is David Hershkovits. As a founder and, until recently, editor-in-chief of Paper magazine, I have been a long-time advocate for cannabis reform and legalization as well as a supporter of the community and culture surrounding this movement. On Light CultureI, I'll be exploring the exploding cannabis industry and its relationship to our lives and times as told through the voices of some of today's most influential tastemakers -- rappers, writers, artists, fashion designers, models, advocates and activists, influencers, entrepreneurs and others who live the cannabis life, respect its history and embrace its future. Light Culture is brought to you exclusively by Burb -- where cannabis, clothing and culture intersect. Based in Vancouver, Canada, Burb hopes to build on the city's legacy of tolerance and respect and on British Columbia's great gift to the world -- BC Bud.
