Adam Bierman, the bullishly confident 36-year-old CEO of MedMen—the first American cannabis company to be valued at a billion dollars—thinks Donald Trump is very good for business.
“This administration is the best we’ve had in a very long time for our cause,” he told me last week as we spoke in a spotless white conference room inside his company’s new $15 million marijuana factory, near Reno. “This administration have said that they’re a champion of states’ rights. They’re a champion of business. When people say, ‘The last person in the world that would sign a marijuana bill into law would be Donald Trump,’ I don’t think it’s that crazy. I think it makes perfect sense for him to be the person that would sign it.”
