Why are we so certain writer-activist Madison Margolin is the closest thing to legal weed royalty California has to offer? That she’d undoubtedly find that sentence appalling is a start. The matter is cinched by her having the likes of Timothy Leary brought home by her father, the immortal Bruce Margolin.
- Now co-editor of the psychedelics-focused DoubleBlind magazine, Margolin attended Leary’s memorial along with Ram Dass and so many heavies. Years later she would connect spiritual teachings with the drug culture.
- “I’m thinking that psychedelics are about five to ten years behind cannabis,” says Margolin.
- Her sister Allison is, like Bruce Margolin, a longtime cannabis defense attorney.
