We are heading to Las Vegas this Sunday for the Growth Capital Expo. We were introduced to the conference from a very valued colleague in the industry, Doug Leighton. As a result, we have been asked to speak on the cannabis panel, “The Green Rush: Opportunities and Pitfalls of Investing in Public Marijuana Companies,” along with Doug Leighton, Alan Brochstein, Marc Ross, and John Clarke.
