PAPER Magazine Creative Director Drew Elliott adds, "With EMBER we are taking you out of the weeds of stoner culture, and introducing you to an exciting community, growers and innovators who are taking pot to new places. Pot is Pop Culture, and finally we are seeing it legalized and new ways to consume it. It is not just about smoking anymore. When I walked into the MedMen store, I was transformed. There was so much more than cannabis being sold. This was a culture...and a cool one at that. This magazine is going to open your eyes to a whole new point of view on pot, and let’s just say, it’s not what you think…it’s even better.”
