3rd Annual Washington Cannabis Summit
January 6 @ 7:30 am – 10:00 pm
The legalization of cannabis and hemp in Washington State has opened a pathway for the whole plant and its varieties to come out of the proverbial closet and into the light, as agriculture. The socially beneficial implications of this transformation will depend on the ecological sustainability of how newly legal plants are grown. The new industry has a great deal to learn from existing State agricultural expertise about soil, water, food and pesticide application. This panel draws on broader non-cannabis expertise as well as the experience of newly legal growers to explore questions of sustainability, regulation and ecology to help push the industry towards ecological and regulatory best practices.
Current Speakers on this panel include:
Brenda Book, Program Manager, WSDA Organic Food Program
Eric Brandstad, Forever Flowering Greenhouses
Emily Febles, J.D., Industrial Hemp Program Coordinator Washington State Dept. of Agriculture (WSDA)
Max Salinger, Procurement Manager, Solstice
Steve Warner, President & CEO of the Washington State Wine Commission
