It is estimated that the legal marijuana industry will grow to $18 billion a year by 2018 and as of today, 22 states have some form of legalization. Oregon itself currently has 113 approved applications for medical marijuana dispensaries. As you might expect, a range of new advertising, publishing and digital business are being launched to support this relatively new industry.

Burning Issues will take an inside look at this new market and how it is affecting publishers, advertising agencies and retailers locally and nationally.

We will get expert insights from a panel comprised of:
• Wes Abney, publisher of the highly successful magazine Northwest Leaf and the new Oregon Leaf.
• Anthony Johnson, the Executive Director of the Oregon Cannabis Industry Association (OCIA).
• Alexa Divett co-founder and Marketing Director with Canna Marketing & Design.
• Ryan Mclean, founder of Bridge City Collective, one of Portland’s multiple location medical marijuana dispensary.
Who should attend:
Anyone interested in what could be one of the largest new advertising categories in the country.

Topic-friendly munchies and drinks will be provided.

Cost: Members ~ $40. | NonMembers ~ $60.
Seats are limited so register early to guarantee your seat at what is sure to be a very provocative discussion.
