Poseidon Founder Selected to Speak on NPR Forum

Poseidon Managing Director Emily Paxhia was called on to take part in a discussion on the evolution of the cannabis industry with other luminaries on NPR affiliate station, KQED. 

“Cannabis industry research firms predict that if legalized, California’s marijuana industry will grow to nearly six and a half billion dollars by 2020,” they begin, and launch into the frenzied interest in the industry by Silicon Valley VCs, scrappy startups, and existing businesses. How will all be affected? The forum discusses the likely winners and losers, how the election could change California’s economic landscape, and the challenges of regulating an adult use market.
