Former governor’s son now medical marijuana grower

More from this show

His name is definitely recognizable but Fife Symington did not go into the family business. Instead he has made a name for himself nationwide as one of the largest growers of medical marijuana. With an operation in Snowflake, Symington has now expanded and invested in two Valley dispensaries. He talks about getting started in the agricultural business, why he chose medical marijuana, the challenges he faces, and the future of marijuana in Arizona.
