Frenchy Cannoli, a celebrated hashishin, writer, activist, and educator who taught the ancient art of hash-making, succumbed July 18, 2021, to complications following surgery. He was 64.

Industry members and fans expressed condolences to his family and vowed to continue his legacy.


“Frenchy was such an inspiration and light in this community,” Chloe Villano wrote in a Facebook tribute. “An educator who knew so many trade secrets yet wanted to give them all away so everybody could make the best hash. He will live on as a legend and inspiration to many.”
