His “Ask Ed”® marijuana advice column ran in High Times for several decades and still appears internationally. His book The Marijuana Grower’s Handbook is the official student book at Cannabis Training University and is the only book of its type to be reviewed by the New York Times.
Currently, Rosenthal consults for commercial growers throughout the world, both independently and as a team member of Quantum 9, a cannabis consulting service. Beyond the garden, Rosenthal views marijuana law as a crucial social issue and has been active in promoting and developing policies of civil regulation. In 2003 he was tried in federal court for cultivation in a trial where the jury was not allowed to hear that he was deputized by the City of Oakland to provide marijuana for patients. His trial shifted public opinion in favor of state medical marijuana laws.
He currently serves as the Executive Director of Green Aid: The Medical Marijuana Legal Defense and Education Fund.
Rosenthal has also served as an expert witness for federal, state, and civil marijuana cases for over thirty years.
