Blunt Talk: Operating a Cannabis Business

You're invited to an evening of “Ted” style presentations by cannabis professionals, networking, and an awesome raffle. Did we mention Tacos?

Blunt Talks are “Ted” style presentations given by innovators of the cannabis industry who want to share their knowledge so we can grow together!

With the passage of Proposition 64 (legalization of recreational marijuana use), the California cannabis industry is experiencing a period of rapid growth! There are more businesses, brands, products, and services than ever before, and now is your chance to learn from a few that are really changing the game!

Whether you’re a professional looking to transition careers into the cannabis industry, a canna-professional looking to keep up to date with whats going on, or a business owner that is looking to add talent to your team, this installment of Blunt Talk will prepare you!
