LAS VEGAS — Marijuana cultivation is a family affair for Los Angeles native David Holmes. A couple of his uncles grew cannabis, as did his brother. But while they were off planting and harvesting, Holmes was busy studying mathematics in college.
“And at that point I wasn’t really a connoisseur,” says Holmes.
Around 15 years ago, he says, a friend in graduate school turned him on to a particularly potent strain of weed.
