I was accepted into the US Navy advanced nuclear propulsion program for nuclear engineering and mechanical curriculum when I was 17. I graduated at the top of my class and was selected to the staff instructor program based on the achievements made during my educational period.
Having worked for several advanced tech companies such as Boeing and Sarcos/Raytheon in an engineering capacity. I now own / co-own two engineering tech companies. One of those companies is related to the cannabis industry.
My family has several ties to the old counter culture in the northern California Emerald Triangle area with clandestine cultivation going back to the early 1980’s. I have always been fascinated with this culture.
As an engineering professional in the cannabis industry, I find solutions to problems of function or scale, implement automatic processes, offer general cultivation and facility design consultation along with general project management.
Due to several events that led to the loss of loved ones, treatment of sick loved ones, and having a general disdain for people telling me that something is bad when they know nothing about it. I have been advocating for Cannabis on a state and national level for the last 6 years.
I have teamed up with Truce in order to help educate a wider audience on the policies and evidence surrounding cannabis, the logistics of programs in other states, and why we need to have a mechanism for access to this important plant.

Justin Arriola – Managing Partner, Global Chief Operations Officer
His family has grown cannabis in California for generations. Justin took a different path, enlisting in the Navy, earning a degree in engineering and undergoing nuclear submarine training. He left the Navy to work a variety of engineering projects such as the Exo Skeleton project with Sarcos and big companies like Boeing before he decided to start a Utah based industrial engineering firm, servicing primarily the mining industry. By the 21st Century, medicinal cannabis became mainstream and recreational cannabis more tolerated; freed from the constraints of clandestine operation, Arriola saw the potential to radically improve efficiencies in cultivation and processing cannabis products through application of industrial design principles, chemistry, technology and standardized procedures. Justin has worked with many successful cannabis operators west of the Mississippi and his firm now has a separate specialized engineering practice serving the cannabis industry.
