Cannabis Reporter, The Boston Globe
Dan Adams, the cannabis reporter for the Boston Globe, will serve as master of ceremonies at the Summit. He is the author of the acclaimed “This Week in Weed” newsletter—the definitive insider’s diary of legalization in Massachusetts that nearly 100,000 readers rely on for exclusive scoops, irreverent commentary, and the latest news from the front lines of industry and advocacy.
A graduate of Emerson College and a seven-year veteran of the Globe, Dan previously covered local politics, business, and alcohol; his investigation into “pay-to-play” tactics by brewers and beer distributors prompted multiple state and federal investigations. Since being named the Globe’s first dedicated cannabis journalist, Dan has embedded himself in the marijuana community and spotlighted the concerns of marginalized groups while holding the industry and government officials accountable. He has also moderated several panels on marijuana, appeared on NPR, and will present at the inaugural Cannabis Media Summit in New York City.
