San Francisco nightlife figure Johnny “Love” Metheny is a local celebrity gaining industry access through social equity licenses. The newly lively program brought on a couple of other compelling stories, if not boldface names.
- Hong Kong-born Henry Chan came into cannabis as a cultivator in 2009. He owns the Weedhub delivery service and is working toward opening the CannaClub dispensary in December.
- The final SF licensee is Damien Posey, whose FGW Haight consumption lounge project drew the night’s sole dissenting vote. Previously, Posey spent five years working as a case manager for United Playaz, a San Francisco youth violence prevention program.
- Alexis Bronson is Metheny’s business partner and the CEO of the dispensary, which would open on Lombard Street by year’s end.
