With 17 years of experience in the marijuana industry, he is widely recognized as one of the most experienced cultivators of marijuana in the United States. He is an industry leader in best practices for marijuana cultivation and dispensing. His successful record of providing high-quality and compassionate service to patients and customers has been consistently demonstrated throughout his career running cannabis operations in California and Colorado.

Huron became involved in the medical marijuana industry when his father and his father’s partner were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. In 1996, when medical marijuana became available in California, Huron saw firsthand the symptomatic relief patients experienced from this alternative medical treatment. In 2000, he began growing medical marijuana for AIDS patients throughout the state, founding and operating a nonprofit medical marijuana co-op that became one of the most respected and well-known facilities in San Francisco.

After 10 years operating the Elmar Lins Compassion Co-Op, Huron moved to Colorado to co-found Wellspring Collective, which caters to seniors with health challenges and provides alternative health services. In 2010, he launched Good Chemistry Colorado, planning the facility infrastructure design and construction, acquiring the necessary financing and directing the resulting work. It is considered to be one of the finest vertically integrated cannabis companies in the state.

Today, Good Chemistry employs a staff of more than 150, operating dispensaries in Denver and Aurora and a cultivation in Nevada. Huron has developed and implemented best practices in the medical and retail marijuana industry, including a Compassion Care Program that enables patients with limited resources to obtain medical marijuana at little or no cost.

His enforcement of policies and procedures throughout the company has ensured strict compliance with state and local regulations. Huron has collaborated with local leaders and law enforcement to enhance neighborhood safety and security.

Since 2010, Huron has expanded cultivation operations in three large Colorado facilities that are devoted solely to the production of more than 60 strains of marijuana, as well as a cultivation facility in Nevada that is providing high quality cannabis to Nevada dispensaries. Further, he optimized the production of extracts and concentrates through solvent-less processing. Huron is a founding board member of the Cannabis Business Alliance (CBA) and a founder and former board member of the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA). He has served on the Colorado Department of Revenue’s Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division’s (MED) Licensing Authority Advisory Committee, which was charged with advising regulators on the development of production management, tax and other policies pertaining to the use of marijuana.
