The Leaf is back – October 15th.

In just a few years, noted authors and activists Chris Conrad and Mikki Norris built the West Coast Leaf into one of the largest cannabis publications in the world. With a circulation of 175,000, the print edition became a staple of the cannabis industry in the western United States through its authoritative coverage of a rapidly changing landscape.

Then, in early 2013, Conrad and Norris announced that the Leaf was going on hiatus.
