Nearly a year ago, cannabis industry executive Jason Margolies went public regarding his fight with stage-four colon cancer, and the hundreds of friends and peers in the cannabis industry who had his back.
Now that fight is over: Margolies passed away on August 6 at the age of 43.
Known throughout the cannabis industry and beyond for his jovial personality and sense of humor, Margolies kept his spirits up after he was diagnosed with cancer in January 2018. Because he already suffered from an autoimmune disorder, doctors told Margolies there was only a 25 percent chance that his cancer would go into remission. But he remained upbeat, as did his friends.
