Heh, heh…wanna get high?
Asking the wrong person that question in most of the U.S. and world could get you in big trouble, but since we live in the enlightened hippy haven of Washington State, it’s completely legal! And, the legalization of marijuana in Washington (and in Oregon to our south) has given many folks amazing opportunities to make their living by selling legal weed and associated products and events.
Yay for Washington…and, Oregon.
The potheads over at the Greater Seattle Business Association have figured out that weed is a big business opportunity for the LGBTQ community so they put down the bong long enough to plan a cool “summit” featuring panelists from the pot business world and an opportunity for other community members to pick their brains about “The Business of Pot”.
It’s happening this coming Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 4:20 pm (cute) at the Melrose Market Studios at 1532 Minor Ave just off of Pine and around the corner from popular nightlife spot, The Baltic Room. (And, just a block down the street from the GSBA’s offices at Pine and Bellevue). You do need to register if you want to attend. More info down below.
