potAUBURN, WA – We saw it so many times in PSA’s growing up that drugs were bad. But you wouldn’t have gotten that message at a marijuana convention in Washington.

Lots of people selling marijuana products showed up to sell their stuff and network.

A year after Colorado made history and legalized marijuana, the cannabis industry has grown. It’s created jobs and millions of dollars for the economy. But before the new era of pot can begin, events like the convention are taking place so people can make connections. It’ll help them secure suppliers, investors and infrastructures.

So while legalizing pot everywhere might seem like an uphill battle, these folks are ready. And if Colorado taught us anything, you can make a lot of money. And it’s like they say, sometimes money can do a lot of talking.
