At the just concluded SXSW event in Austin, TX — perhaps the biggest conference/show of the year for emerging trends — an entire track was devoted to the subject of cannabis. Taking place in a state where marijuana is still illegal, it was a big deal, featuring dozens of sessions on the business and societal aspects of cannabis.
For anyone looking at how to be involved in that business, it’s a great primer. The link below from the SXSW program goes to the list of individual sessions and while they have all taken place, some of the listings include links to slide presentations and other collateral information. We especially recommend two sessions on retail and the dispensary of the future.
