Grow, Gift, Repair

Cannabis meetup today in Boston!

New England’s white-hot growth industry – legalized cannabis – is being driven by communicators as partners to entrepreneurs and policymakers who stand in the blazing media spotlight. Your employers, clients, families and home communities face impacts and business opportunities.

Heading into 4/20, PRSA Boston hosts a rare power conversation with the trailblazers on the front lines of the Baystate’s rocketing marijuana industry. They will share insights from launching this unfolding entrepreneurial economy. From navigating federal barrier laws, an avalanche of infused products, new health, social justice and public safety education, we’ve got introductions and information for all, plus Altatude fruit soda to sample (sorry, not infused).

The panel and Q&A will be moderated by Jess Bartlett (@BOSBIZJess, @BOSBIZJournal), cannabis and craft beer beat journalist, Boston Business Journal
