CHICAGO, Mar. 24, 2015 /Weed Wire/ — For the first time since the show’s appearance on MSNBC, the cast of the hit documentary series “Pot Barons of Colorado” will come together for an exclusive afternoon lunch at the Marijuana Investor Summit, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Denver International Airport, April 21.
