"Like if Matt Levine was a stoner"
Hi, I’m Puff Money.
An NYU alum and reformed investment banker, I am now a cannabis industry insider. With a financial lens, I’ll aim to bring you daily musings on the stories and news I’m tracking in the industry.
1. Why this, why now
The cannabis industry in the United States is at a moment of tremendous change. Or, should I say, the “legal” cannabis industry. While I firmly believe that weed is a plant that should be accessible to all, that is not our current reality. For better or worse, the cannabis industry is a fascinating intersection of business, politics, culture, and social justice. My focus is primarily finance, but I hope to touch on all corners of this “budding” industry - and expand my own knowledge along the way.
2. What kind of community am I looking to build here
I am taking my inspiration from the great Matt Levine at Bloomberg, and his daily finance column “Money Stuff”. I’ve been an avid reader of Matt’s for over 5 years, and find that his in-depth analysis and smart commentary has enriched my experience in the financial industry - including my ability to think critically, beyond the headlines.
That’s what I hope to deliver, and I hope my readers share the same passion for critical analysis (no matter the subject) as Money Stuff readers.
