Producing Empathy, Conscious Capitalism in Cannabis

11:30 AM - 12:30 PM PST

Many cannabis consumers know what it feels like to be stigmatized even by those they are closest to. For that reason, the community tends to be more open to those that are different than them. This openness has welcomed all lifestyles, races, and genders. It also leads to a sense of fairness and sharing. 

 

How can we extend that attitude to the industry? This panel will explore some creative and conscious ways that the industry could lead with and set an example for other industries. 

Sam De La Paz, Kate Pintor, Geoff Trotter, Weldon Angelos, Brian Chaplin, Sarita Evans
