If you haven't heard yet, we're launching the HIGH TIMES Growth Fund -- a private equity vehicle that would connect investors with legitimate pot start-ups. The fund will be led by our very own Michael Kennedy, General Counsel and Director for HIGH TIMES Magazine, as well as Michael Safir, our Business Manager. Opening next month, the fund will be growing to about $100 million over the next two years.

"Basically, the main obstacle is getting people over the fear of investing in cannabis," Safir told CNBC. "I've kind of taken the position that if you believe in it, it doesn't matter what we say -- you're going to give us a check."
