Join us for an eye-opening discussion about the legal cannabis business in Washington.

Since Initiative 502 legalized recreational marijuana in 2012, the cannabis business has overcome historical stigma and has grown from startup into healthy adolescence. Its growth has surprised both supporters and detractors, with statewide revenues to date exceeding $1.5 Bn. Investment funds have formed to target cannabis opportunities. Barring a reversal of federal tolerance, the industry seems likely to continue growing — and generating significant tax revenue — in Washington State.

Our panel of experts will discuss the industry and its likely future. 

·  Roger Goodman, a Washington State Legislator, attorney, and long-time proponent of marijuana legalization, will be our chair.

· Dan Devlin, co-founder and Executive at Db3, the first licensed edibles producer in Washington, and a successful family-owned company. Dan is a Harvard MBA.

·  Michael McNutt, part-owner of Farmwest One, a cannabis grow operation in Omak, WA.

·  Oscar Velasco-Schmitz, owner of Dockside Cannabis, a successful group of stores (currently two, soon to be three). Oscar was a major medical marijuana retailer before I-502, and brings the long historical view of marijuana retailing.

This event is likely to sell out — don’t delay registering!
