Green rush dreams on display at LA’s Cannabis Business Expo

Hosted by

Polls show 60 percent of likely California voters support Proposition 64 – the November ballot initiative that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana. Backers of the measure see big dollar signs in California’s future, and local growers and retailers, as well as out-of-state hedge funds and big money investors, are positioning themselves to cash in on what could be a multi-billion dollar a year industry. The green rush dream is on display this week at the LA Convention Center at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo and KCRW reporter and producer Saul Gonzalez went to check it out.
