Cookies CEO Becomes First Executive from Cannabis Industry to Get Forbes Cover – aGOODoutfit


For the first time ever, a cannabis industry CEO is on the front cover of Forbes. Gilbert Anthony Milam Jr., also known as Berner, is a Bay Area rapper and entrepreneur who co-founded Cookies and is the chief strategist behind the explosion of the brand.

The Forbes  cover is synonymous with business success so it is quite telling that the publication has decided to put the co-founder and CEO of the popular Cookies cannabis brand on the cover. In addition to cannabis, Cookies is also a popular clothing line which can be found in stores like Zumiez.

Berner said of the new cover:

“I’ve been in the legal cannabis industry for 20 years and have dedicated most of my life to this fight. To be selected as one of the faces for federal legalization in our country is a huge compliment to my work. I’m extremely humbled, excited and motivated to keep pushing the cannabis industry forward and to continue representing minorities in the space. This is just the beginning for Cookies and I want to thank Forbes for helping us share our story.”

As of right now cannabis is a $72 billion dollar industry that is only expected to grow in the coming years.

Congratulations to Berner for landing the cover!
