Grow, Build, Sustain: “From Seeds to Sales, A Cannabis Tech Salon”

  • Eaton House Washington (map)

DC Startup Week 2019

Join the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Metropolitan D.C. Chapter, and D.C. Startup Week during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s 49th Annual Legislative Conference for Grow, Build, Sustain: “From Seeds to Sales, A Cannabis Tech Salon”. This year, the Cannabis Tech Salon is honoring Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA), Co-Chair of the Bi-Partisan Congressional Cannabis Caucus, and Washington, D.C. Mayor, Muriel Bowser. We will be showcasing the growth and development of cannabis production in an effort to include and empower more Black business owners, a demographic that is tremendously underrepresented in today’s legal cannabis economy. The cannabis industry employs thousands of people in high-tech agricultural jobs, manufacturing, distribution, and retail. And, roughly two-thirds of Americans now live in states where some form of cannabis is legal, and polls consistently demonstrate that over 70% of Americans support permitting states to develop their own cannabis policies.
