Kush N Crypto: Speaker Series

It seems like every day a new coin is made and another headline focused on cryptocurrency has either dramatically positive or negative predictions for the future of the industry.

What are cryptocurrencies? What is blockchain? Why does any of this matter? And how can you get involved?

Please join us for a discussion on cannabis and crypto. The panel will address information on their business within the sector as well as ways they see blockchain and cryptocurrencies can be a solution to historic issues and more. If you are like most people, you’ve heard a lot about all of this stuff and you're finally try to figure out what all of this means and if you need to get on board.

Cost: $5 (Hence the song "I got 5 on it"!
