The Cannabis Private Investment Summit West took place in Beverly Hills, CA on May 4, 2016. The event brought together the best and brightest entrepreneurs, advocates, thought leaders, and funders to elevate the cannabis industry.
"As Cannabis seemingly barrels toward federal legalization, hosts Lindsey and Jenny dig into the unique challenges faced by ganja-preneurs in the American states where it’s already gained legal status. Guests include Christian Hageseth, Cheeche Marin, and Charlo Greene."
"Colorado legalized the use of medical marijuana in 2000 and recreational use in 2012. But as Hageseth tells Business Insider, 'We are still an unwelcome business on the federal level....It's illegal for a bank to take my money. It's just like they were taking El Chapo Guzman's money or Scarface's money. I am treated like any other drug dealer.'"
"Christian Hageseth, founder of American Cannabis Partners, Green Man Cannabis and the Colorado Cannabis Ranch and author of 'Big Weed,' gave a presentation at the recent High Times Business Summit titled 'Innovate or Die.' During the session, he discussed at length why industry leadership in innovation is key in determining the progress and growth of the cannabis industry."
"Christian Hageseth, founder of Green Man Cannabis, and author of the book Big Weed, joins Joe and OG down in the basement to give insight into the struggles of the all cash legal marijuana world."
"High Noon Entertainment and Dan Farah’s Farah Films have put in development an unscripted series on Green Man Cannabis founder Christian Hageseth and are shopping the project to cable networks. The companies secured life rights to Hageseth, who’s described as the new face of the emerging legalized-marijuana industry in the U.S."
"The average price of a gram of marijuana is currently about $12 in Washington, according to the latest data from the state’s Liquor Control Board. That’s down from about $30 at its peak in August of last year."
