The ‘green rush’ is on in Washington State, and I’m sure many of you are trying to get your piece of the pie. Implementation of Washington’s I-502 will take awhile, and the details will be very important, as even minor things can have huge ramifications on your business model. I have seen many people try to crack into the cannabis industry, just to find out in the middle of it about a rule/statute/provision that they didn’t know about which resulted in the difference between failure and success. There is a great opportunity coming up in Seattle where people can hear about the I-502 implementation process from Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn. Below is more information:
On Monday, January 28, the National Cannabis IndustryAssociation – the national trade association representing legitimate cannabis businesses – is hosting a discussion with Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn on the implications of the passage of the new law taxing and regulating marijuana in the state.
The event will be taking place at the Washington Athletic Club in downtown Seattle. Admission is free for NCIA members and all other tickets are available in for $40 in advance $50 at the door. All proceeds benefit the National Cannabis Association, which lobbies in support of the legal cannabis industry in Washington, DC.
