The retail marijuana industry has seen explosive growth in Washington state since it was legalized in 2012. With more and more states moving toward legalization, we're taking a deep look at this brand new, promising but challenging industry, and how some of the early big players have handled branding, marketing, and advertising.
How do you handle branding in a category without convention? How do you advertise in a heavily regulated and federally restricted industry? How do you take cannabis consumption from rough trade to big business?
Learn about all this and more from some of the most prominent voices in the retail marijuana industry in this eye-opening and exciting panel discussion.
