About the Event:
It’s been 53 days since the federal government legalized cannabis. There are companies positioning themselves to take part in the economy, both large and small. What will happen to the small business owners who grew the cannabis industry into what it is today? How will municipalities adapt to accept or reject the new cannabiz economy? What do we know about cannabis and how will our knowledge grow now that it is no longer a controlled substance? Join us for an evening of presentations by people who have been working in areas that impact our everyday life, our community and our economy.

Event Details:
