The East Coast is finally ready to begin its marijuana industry in earnest. Now you have the chance to get in on the ground floor with the education and networking you’ll find at Robert Platshorn’s Meet the Experts V conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey, 

The 2016 election brought the tantalizing promise of cannabis commerce all along the Atlantic, from the legalized pot lounges of Maine to the medical marijuana patients of Florida. Boston becomes the first big Northeastern city with legal marijuana, while all along the coast, major cities like Manchester, New Hampshire; Providence, Rhode Island; New Haven, Connecticut; New York, New York; Trenton, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Wilmington, Delaware; Baltimore, Maryland; Washington, D.C., and Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami, and Tampa, Florida, all have some form of medical marijuana. Even the southern cities of Richmond, Virginia; Raleigh, North Carolina; Charleston, South Carolina; and Atlanta, Georgia, have cannabidiol laws that are being amended for commercial purposes.

Meet the Experts is Mr. Platshorn’s fifth conference specifically dedicated to entrepreneurs understanding and thriving under the stricter and more arduous regulations for medical marijuana found in the eastern United States. Taking place March 18 & 19 at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, this conference is perfectly located for east coast attendees. Top industry, cultivation, and legal experts from around the country will deliver presentations designed for those people who are serious about entering the cannabis industry.

Event producers Rhory Gould and Robert Platshorn brought together a roster of outstanding cannabis professionals to speak, advise, meet and network for two full days. Key Note speakers include award winning Denver Relief Consulting and Discovery Channel’s Master Grower, Mike Boutin. Attendance is limited to a maximum of 450. All ticket sales benefit The Silver Tour, a non-profit teaching seniors the benefits of cannabis.

These conferences are common in Colorado, and California. But east coast states are relatively new to the industry. According to producer Robert Platshorn, “States from Florida to Maine passed new cannabis laws in 2016. Most are just now writing their regulations or have just announced licensing opportunities. Confusion about who can do what or who can be licensed, is rife. Doctors need guidelines. Growers want information on legal growing. Labs, labeling and packaging are new to many aspiring entrepreneurs. Meet the Experts will focus on this information void.”

I’ve had the honor of reporting from two of the previous four sold-out Meet the Experts conferences and I’ll be speaking and reporting from this one as well. Harrah’s Resort is offering a special room rate which you can learn about at MeetExperts.org.
