Ryan Basore spent years in prison for marijuana, now he’s launching his own brand

In 2010, Ryan Basore left his job in the insurance industry and entered the state’s nascent medical marijuana industry, becoming one of Michigan’s first caregivers.

Within the span of three years, Basore would be targeted by federal investigators, charged with marijuana-related crimes and be imprisoned.

Now, a decade after opening his first medical marijuana business, and only a few years removed from his release, Basore, a cannabis advocate, is launching a new brand of products aimed at helping those affected by the continued criminalization of marijuana named Redemption.
