Robert Lucero is a Pueblo, CO. native with multiple businesses in both Colorado and Arizona. He has been in business in the Pueblo area for over 25 years and when he was asked how he got into the medical and recreational marijuana industry he stated…”I got into it for the good of it, there was such a bad stigma and negative feelings towards it everywhere. When you open your mind, and you look at the medical breakthroughs marijuana has to offer, and you see they could definitely outweigh the bad, it makes for an interesting discussion. This is history in the making, where revolutionary advances in modern medicine through the use and study of cannabis, are changing the way we view medicine, and when you get right down to it, it is pretty amazing.” He says his main goal is to run a reputable business in Pueblo and make it profitable so that he can donate money to local charities and create scholarships and a nonprofit to continue to help raise money to fight Batten Disease.
