Venice Boys Cannabis History..

Introducing Hugo Moreno, the visionary force behind Venice Boys. A true son of the Venice community, Hugo's journey began with his early involvement in Project Heavy West alongside Steve Singleton, setting the stage for his steadfast advocacy for positive change. He was also an active participant in the Venice Teen Post summer programs, further solidifying his commitment to community betterment.


Continuing his mission, Hugo served as a dedicated counselor at Venice 2000, guiding troubled adolescents towards brighter paths. His roots in Venice are profound, having proudly worn the iconic Venice Bulldogs jersey during his time in Pop Warner football. Additionally, Hugo attended the Venice Skills Center, honing his skills and paving the way for a future defined by resilience and dedication.


In a pivotal turn of events, Hugo's journey included being on the Venice Boys Gang Injunction in 2000, an experience that ultimately led him through the California Youth Authority, county jails, and state prison. This challenging chapter in his life, however, became a testament to his remarkable resilience and determination to forge a new, positive path forward.


Today, Hugo stands as a prominent figure in the cannabis industry, holding a coveted cannabis micro license granted by the city of Los Angeles through the esteemed Social Equity Program. His license, numbered C12-0000498, encompasses Distribution, Manufacturing, and Retail non-storefront operations, showcasing his expertise and dedication in this thriving field.


As the owner and founder of Venice Boys cannabis, Hugo has established a brand that not only delivers quality products but also carries a legacy of community empowerment. His commitment to the Venice community is further solidified by his registered trademarks with the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office. These include the distinctive marks for Venice Ganja, bearing registration number #6072246, and Venice Kush, registered under #6430744. Additionally, a pending application for the trademark of Venice Boys is a testament to Hugo's unwavering vision for the future. His achievements stand as a beacon of transformation, showcasing how determination and passion can lead to profound success.
