On Friday, Feb. 2, Michael and his team attended the International Cannabis Business Conference in San Francisco in order to investigate the current state of legal marijuana – and what's on the horizon.

The amount of startups with new technologies and services for legal cannabis companies on the conference floor seemed limitless. We lost track of how many entrepreneurs and budding CEOs Michael got to talk to. Frankly, it was dizzying.

And the industry will be generating almost $22 billion in sales by 2021 – triple what it did in 2016. You can't ignore that kind of growth.
