Episode Description

On this special Election Day episode, as nine states vote on legalization measures expanding the possibility of the growing industry even further, Eva discusses barriers to entry in the blossoming cannabis industry. Can small cannabusinesses still start up and survive--even thrive, or has so-called Big Marijuana, and the price of entry, made it impossible? Co-founders of Greenlight Drafts, Rebecca Gasca and Sarah Krings-Lien join Eva on the show to discuss these very questions. Greenlight Drafts is a subsidiary of Pistil and Stigma, a government and relations consulting firm that has worked in and advised on medical cannabis licensing proposals with clients and partners from over eleven states, as well as Canada and Puerto Rico. Greenlight Drafts offers affordable operating plans, policies, and procedures that help level the playing field. If you’re looking for your shot to enter the cannabis industry, this episode is for you. Tune in and toke up with Eva Sativa, Tuesday at 4pm PST.
