Steve DeAngelo is an undisputed national leader and provocative visionary in the cannabis industry, with four decades of activism and advocacy in the cannabis reform movement. News teams from around the globe have featured Steve, including major media outlets in the United States, Canada, Italy, Japan, Germany, Brazil and the United Kingdom. Steve's landmark Harborside Health Center in Cali- fornia has also been covered extensively as a model for the emerging cannabis industry nationwide; it is a place where safe access, com- passionate and responsible use, and lab-tested, high-quality medicine, is offered to patients in great need of relief from a wide range of medical conditions.

An engaging speaker and interview subject, Steve DeAngelo has been featured in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, CNN, the Associated Press, Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, NPR, the BBC, the Discovery Channel, Fortune Magazine, Forbes Magazine, and every major television network news source in the country. His creation of a model medical cannabis dispensary that sets the best practices for an entire industry, along with his lifelong cannabis activism and encyclopedic knowledge in this arena, has made Steve one of the world's foremost cannabis experts and respected speakers on this controversial issue.
Harborside Health Center His activist education started early. Stephen DeAngelo was born in Philadelphia in 1958 and raised in Washington, D.C., where his father worked for the Kennedy administration. At a young age, Steve was influenced by his parents' involvement in the Civil Rights movement and his father's work with the Peace Corps (1967-1969) - but most significantly when the family returned to the U.S. from India as the Vietnam War and its atrocities were prominent in the news. Feeling the turbulent signs of the times, Steve began skipping school to attend antiwar demonstrations - in 7th grade he organized the takeover of his school's gymnasium in solidarity with one of these antiwar demonstrations. By the time he was a teenager Steve was aware that his political dissent could very well result in going to jail or being shot. Nonetheless, that didn't stop him. At 16 years old Steve dropped out of school to join the Yippies, and was the key organizer of the annual Fourth of July (Marijuana) Smoke-Ins in front of the White House.
Steve spent several years as a street activist, and then transitioned between activism and entrepreneurial endeavors. It wasn't easy. As he grew from a teenager to a young man in his 20s, Steve put the skills he learned as a street activist (event planning, stage management and promotions) to work in the music industry. He became an Independent concert promoter, nightclub manager and record producer. Steve soon renovated two movie theaters and converted them to live music venues - yet another model developed way before its time. He played a key role in the rehabilitation of the Adams Morgan neighborhood in D.C., with the opening of the Beat Club and renovation of Ontario Theater from movies to live performances.
In 1984 Steve completed his interrupted education, summa cum laude from the University of Maryland in two and a half years. After graduation he opened the legendary Nuthouse, which High Times Magazine called a version of the famous Family Dog in San Francisco.
After helping Jack edit and publish the manuscript, Steve became a prime organizer of the first Hemp Museum and Hemp Tour, which brought the news about hemp to hundreds of universities nationwide.
Before long, Steve had completely exhausted the available supply of twine in the United States, so he traveled to Eastern Europe in search of a reliable source. That trip led to the 1990 founding of Ecolution, a pioneering company that manufactured hemp clothing and accessories, and exported them to retail stores in 50 states and 21 foreign countries. This enterprise again enabled Steve to cross-pollinate his extraordinary leadership and activism skills, helping Ecolution grow into one of the most professional and mainstream hemp companies in the country. Steve sees hemp and cannabis as one issue, not two. He believes that the 1937 legislation that made cannabis illegal was passed due to influence from moneyed interests like the Hearst and DuPont Corporations, which saw hemp as a threat to their investments in timber and plastics.
In 1998, two years after California passed its landmark medical cannabis initiative, Steve played a key leadership role in the passage of Washington, D.C.'s medical cannabis legislation, Initiative 59. Despite winning with 69% of the vote, and in every single precinct in the city, the U.S. Congress used its power to veto implementation of I-59. Shocked and disillusioned by this violation of majority rule, Steve decided to move to California where, unlike D.C., medical cannabis legislation was not subject to a congressional veto.
Steve arrived in California in 2000, and immersed himself in the local medical cannabis milieu. He was one of the original founding members of Americans for Safe Access, the premier advocacy group for medical cannabis patients. He wrote and produced a short documentary film called, "For Medical Use Only," helped organize several legal cannabis gardens, and invented a new form of cannabis concentrate. All the while, he laid plans for a new type of medical cannabis dispensary. Steve got the chance to put his plans in action October 2006, when he won a highly competitive request for proposal (RFP) process and was issued a medical cannabis dispensary license by the City of Oakland.
Steve launched Harborside Health Center to bring a new model of professionalism and integrity to the industry. Harborside quickly gained recognition for its free holistic care clinic, laboratory-tested medicine, low-income care package program, and wide array of other patient services. This innovative approach generated widespread acceptance and notoriety, with acclaim by the community, city council, and local law enforcement in Northern California and beyond. In 2007 Steve was a founder in the creation and development of Steep Hill Labs, California's premier medical cannabis analysis laboratory for safety screening and quality assurance. He also founded The Arc View Investment group, pairing angel investors with cannabis entrepreneurs.
"Out of the shadows and into the light" epitomizes Steve's mission. His work to expose the myths created about cannabis, and to promote the positive science that is starting to emerge about it, aims to enlighten the public on the many benefits of the cannabis plant.
This is an important moment in time and history that is empowering the country to change its image and perception of cannabis. Steve DeAngelo and Harborside Health Center are leading the way globally, while the rest of the world is now discovering the many health benefits of this amazing plant.
Andrew and his brother Steve DeAngelo continued their pursuit of changing medical cannabis laws by raising funds, collecting signatures, and eventually passing Initiative 59, a medical cannabis legalization law in the City of Washington D.C. in November of 1998--a law that was initially overturned by Republicans in the U.S Congress.
Andrew also worked with his brother Steve in the successful operation of Ecolution Inc. a hemp clothing company in the 1990s and helped Ecolution grow to over $1 Million in annual revenue.
Ecolution was sold when Andrew and Steve decided to leave the Washington D.C area and return to California where medical cannabis was legal and accepted.
