Cannabis & Biotech Author & Journalist
Javier Hasse is a young, passionate writer and reporter with a focus on, and a strong commitment to the cannabis and (small cap) biotech industries. For years, Javier has strived to educate people on entrepreneurship, business, policy, politics and science topics, putting an emphasis on research and hard data, interpreting this information through a qualitative lens in an attempt to make the reader feel closer to the material. His work is often qualified as easily understandable, accessible to everyone, didactic and unpretentious.
Over time, Javier has become an advocate of marijuana legalization, proclaiming the societal, economic and public health benefits that would derive from it.
