Danielle O'Leary is a leading member of the team creating the legal cannabis program in San Rafael, California. She is the Director of Economic Development and Innovation and because of her efforts, Nice Guys Delivery and others are able to legally sell cannabis in San Rafael and Marin County.
In this episode, we talk to Danielle about San Rafael's Cannabis Program and how it’s been going since it was created. We talk about different ways cannabis is bringing positive change to the community and also a little bit about her background. This is a unique conversation with someone from outside the industry.

Our talk is based around these questions:
You are helping write and guide policies for a community trying to embrace cannabis. How did you come to this position and what is the career history that led you here?
The majority of Marin voted for legalization and each community across California is embracing prop 64 in their own way. Marin has eased its way forward regarding policies. What's the next progression?
Have licensed cannabis businesses been good operators in San Rafael? How are we doing?
What is the biggest concern from the city's point of view? What are some mistakes you've seen other communities make?
Where is the tax revenue being applied?
Aside from Tax revenue, what do you and the city hope to see from us as licensed businesses?
Have you seen an increase in crime since San Rafael began allowing legal cannabis sales?
