40 Under 40
For the past five years, the Marijuana Venture staff has compiled an annual list of some of the brightest young leaders and influencers in the cannabis industry. As in past years, we have narrowed the list from hundreds of worthy candidates to present 40 individuals from the vast and ever-changing business in the United States and Canada.
It is our honor to share their stories.
Mike Glazer has been in love with comedy and cannabis since high school, but he didn’t expect that marrying the two would lead to him selling out the Hollywood Improv for two years straight, meeting his childhood hero — Animaniacs creator Tom Rugger — or being nominated for an Emmy for his writing on HBO’s Night of Too Many Stars.
“We lost the Emmy to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat’ with John Legend,” Glazer says. “So yeah, I’m coming for Andrew Lloyd Webber.”
Through his live show, Glazed, he has worked with some of biggest names in comedy, such as Dave Chappelle and Tiffany Haddish. And on his podcast, Weed+Grub, co-hosted with former High Times editor Mary Jane Gibson, Glazer has sat down with the leading voices of cannabis culture and cannabis business.
“To curate and bring together a community through cannabis and entertainment, that’s why I am alive,” Glazer says.
