Portland Advertising Federation On Building A Brand For Your Cannabis Business

As Oregon’s legal cannabis industry rapidly expands, the importance of standing out from the crowd is increasingly apparent. In a market quickly becoming saturated with growers, producers, and dispensaries, finding a unique product and an effective way to get it to the consumer is essential for the success of your business. I learned more about branding recently while attended the second annual Potland Marketing Event in Portland, Oregon, hosted by the Portland Advertising Federation. There was a large turnout, and moderator Claire Kaufmann, of rebrandingcannabis.com directed the conversation for the first portion, presenting questions and topics for the panelists to elaborate on, with a Q&A at the end. Each…

US House Renews Protection For Medical Marijuana Businesses In DOJ Budget

For the second year in a row, and with 23 more votes in support than last year, the U.S. House of Representatives has voted to protect state-legal medical marijuana businesses, caregivers, and patients from federal interference and prosecution. With 242 Members of Congress, including more than 65 Republicans, voting in support of an amendment to the Commerce, Justice, and Science appropriations bill offered by Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Sam Farr (D-CA), the House once again forbade the use of federal funds to raid, harass, or otherwise interfere with medical cannabis patients or providers in states where medical marijuana is…

California Congressmen to Feds: Stop Prosecuting MMJ Businesses

Two California congressmen said U.S. attorneys seeking to seize two dispensaries in the state have gone rogue and are breaking federal guidelines. Reps. Sam Farr and Dana Rohrabacher sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking that the Department of Justice stop prosecutions and forfeiture actions against those following state laws. A federal spending bill passed in December includes a provision telling the DOJ that it shouldn’t interfere with state laws concerning marijuana. A DOJ spokesman last week said dispensaries and their owners remain targets for federal raids because the rule doesn’t apply to businesses or people. Rather, the…

Peyton Manning: Legal Pot Has Been Awesome For My Pizza Business

Peyton Manning is here to offer us all a somewhat obvious business lesson: legal pot is good for the pizza business. Manning, the Denver Broncos’ quarterback who bought a whole bunch of Papa John’s franchises just before Colorado residentsvoted to legalize recreational marijuana, said in a recent interview that legal pot has been a boon for sales. “There’s some different laws out here in Colorado,” Manning told Sports Illustrated in an interview published Thursday. “Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes.” Thanks to the approval of Amendment 64 in Colorado, weed is now regulated…

The International Cannabis Business Conference

On September 13th and 14th, the International Cannabis Business Conference was held in the City of Roses, Portland, Oregon. Around 700 attendees, a few having traveled from as far as India, gathered to listen to cutting edge speakers on all things cannabusiness. Innovation and a cotton-mouthesque thirst for knowledge and creative solutions abounded. The conference opened with keynote speaker Andrew Sullivan. Sullivan’s conservation blog, The Dish, is well known for its defense of gay marriage and pro-marijuana stance, but this is the first time Sullivan has spoken out loud in marijuana’s defense and admiration. He opened his talk with, “I’ve…
