In 1995, Health Canada granted his license for the first legal hemp field in Manitoba, in over 73 years. Marcus’ first goal was to change the licensing rhetoric from “experimental” to “commercial,” encouraging industry and the profits that come with it.

Marcus left Manitoba for British Columbia in 1996 in order to grow cannabis for the British Columbia Compassion Club Society, which provides cannabis and natural therapies to patients whose ailments would otherwise be difficult to live with. In 1998, he was affiliated with Consolidated Growers and Processors, Inc., which pioneered the hemp phytoremediation project to decontaminate soil in the Chernobyl region of Ukraine. Industrial hemp growing has since reduced the toxicity of the soil considerably.

In 1999, Marcus established FreshHeadies, Ltd.,The Bubbleman Was born ,which helped popularize the water method for extracting cannabis, creating the first three-bag multitasking filtration kit as well as the first 4, 5 6 7 and 8 bag kits. The bags gently extract the glandular trichome heads of the cannabis plant, which contain the highest concentration of THC. Currently, Fresh Headies, Ltd., produces the world’s first and only eight-bag water extraction kits.
