Cannabis: Keep Your Career, Change Your Industry


Cannabis: Keep Your Career, Change Your Industry will be an engaging meet-up group designed to connect individuals interested in learning more about the cannabis industry with professionals who can speak to the professional opportunities that exist. This event will discuss how traditional careers, such as Accounting, Marketing or Information Technology, exist within the cannabis space. We aim to dispel misconceptions that the cannabis industry consists of solely marijuana enthusiasts, and will instead showcase some of the extremely talented individuals who have found themselves working in this exciting new industry. Join us to learn more about entering the cannabis business.
