In Washington state most of us are used to seeing news and information about the Cannabis industry but in many states it is just starting. We have a panel discussion with 3 people with deep knowledge and different perspectives about the industry. Where is it going in the WA? Where is it going in other states? How is Canada's new law changing how other governments look at Cannabis.
