Kenny has been on the leading edge of the California cannabis industry since 2006 when he co-founded two well-known medical cannabis collectives in West Los Angeles and Venice Beach. In 2008, Kenny established The Venice Cookie Company–a leading manufacturer of infused products including top-selling chocolate bar and beverage brands, 4.20Bar and Cannabis Quencher. In 2012, Kenny expanded into Washington where he co-founded Evergreen Herbal, a Seattle-based infused products manufacturer and distributor which simultaneously serves the state's medical and recreational markets. Together, these ventures make up VCC Brands, the largest manufacturer and distributor of cannabis brands on the West Coast. Plans are underway to expand the brands’ reach to Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, and Arizona within the year.

As a social entrepreneur and industry activist, his companies are dedicated to "raising the bar” not only with delicious, trustworthy products and packaging, but also by advocating for a future where cannabis can be used safely and responsibly nationwide, without reprisal.
