INTERVIEW 2

 Jason Harris the Owner & Founder Jerome Baker Designs

Jason Harris

Jason talks about his run in with the law. Feds seized everything/arrested Jason during Operation Pipe Dreams (same as Tommy Chong) —now he’s got it all back!

BIO

Jerome Baker Designs (JBD) has been a leader in the cannabis industry ever since 1991, when I founded the company in a dorm room while living in Eugene, Oregon. Cannabis enthusiasts have long recognized JBD for its “world famous bongs.” We’ve taken home some of the industry’s most prestigious awards, creating luxurious glass for well-known celebrities, such as Snoop Dogg and Tommy Chong.

Our glass has been a staple of the west coast since the nineties. We’ve done well over 20 million in revenue since inception–including $4 million in CBD since 2012. And now, after thirty years of creating the best glass in the game, we’ve now expanded into California’s adult use cannabis industry. I personally couldn’t be more excited.

Having been in the cannabis business for thirty years, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of meeting the original progenitors of some of the best known cannabis strains. My old friends and I have teamed up to provide California with epic quantities of only the very best flower.
