Today we speak to Sam Cannon, who didn't take no for an answer when his hemp-focussed applications to the upcoming Cop26 UN Climate Summit were turned down.
Instead he decided to put his passion for hemp and background in music and events to good use, organising an exciting new fringe festival called 'Beyond The Green' at St Lukes in Glasgow on the 5th, 6th and 7th of November.
In this episode, we hear how Sam's passion for campaigning for changing the stigma about hemp and cannabis really came to fruition when his 'day job' Djing and touring with Formula E, the motorsport championship for electric cars, ground to a halt in the pandemic.
Sam also gives us a whistle stop tour of the potential hemp (or is it cannabis) holds for the planet and the overall health of its human inhabitants, as well as his thoughts on why the government are taking so long to listen to the science surrounding hemp's role in becoming carbon neutral.
