The Green Market Summit, The Advanced State of Cannabis Economics is in one week on September 14 at the One World Trade Center. This will be the first cannabis conference attended by TheStreet founder Jim Cramer. In another first, Cramer will be interviewing Brian Athaide, the new CEO of The Green Organic Dutchman (TGODF). The two will discuss cannabis company valuations, the future of cannabis beverages, international markets and much more.
In addition to that, Danny Moses of Moses Ventures will explain to KCSA’s Lewis Goldberg why he is long marijuana. Moses was the head trader at Frontpoint, which was made famous by the book and the movie The Big Short. If you didn’t see or read The Big Short, these traders identified the financial crisis ahead of everyone else and were able to capitalize on the signs they saw. What does Moses see in marijuana? Come and find out.
In addition to these two financial experts, there will be five panels doing deep dives into the cannabis industry. This is not the usual 50,000-foot level approach you get at most cannabis conferences. These are in-depth discussion accompanied by a 3-5 page white paper exclusively written for this event with new data.
