Can the Union of Equity and Tech Save Cannabis?
The cannabis industry has long seen its growth and accessibility stymied by federal prohibition and social stigma—particularly through the disproportionate penalties for production, possession and consumption of cannabis by minorities. Those same factors continue to limit the willingness of the tech industry to improve the accessibility of the cannabis sector through the sort of web-based solutions that have transformed numerous other sectors. This session will identify the pain points in the cannabis industry that could be resolved through equity-based tech solutions, with actionable takeaways cannabis and tech companies alike can implement today to drive forward momentum in both industries.
