Montel reflects on being deployed in the military, and how he often longed for a “different type of social interaction” in that environment. During social isolation, especially for those who are in their homes alone, it is easy to be overcome by loneliness. It’s important to remember that during self-isolation, you don’t have to socially isolate. Reach out to family and friends regularly by telephone, web conference, or FaceTime, those interactions are an important basic human need.

As a co-founder and advisor to one of the oldest and largest cannabis retailers in the world, Harborside, Andrew has pioneered legal cannabis business processes and provided groundbreaking political engagement and thought leadership to the cannabis community — leading the design and development of gold-standard cannabis retail by innovating many “firsts” for the industry. This includes: introducing CBD medicines to heal severely epileptic children, implementing the first lab-testing program in the history of cannabis dispensing, creating child-resistant packaging for edibles, standardizing inventory tracking, initiating senior outreach, and successfully preventing the federal government from seizing Harborside in forfeiture actions against the company in 2012. Andrew began his political career as an activist while studying for his MFA in acting at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco. He has starred in several films and runs an entertainment production company, DeAngelo Brothers Productions (DAB), with his brother Steve.
