*The emerging cannabis industry has not only created thousands of new jobs, but it has also given birth to a new technology niche. Both medical cannabis patients and recreational users are increasingly turning to their smartphones and social media to easily find the deals of the day, scan dispensary menus, and even schedule dispensary-provided services such as yoga. A tour of the Apple App Store and Google Play reveals a rapidly advancing world of weed focused apps. U.S. cannabis sales alone reached $2.7 billion in 2014, a $1.1 billion gain over 2013, The ArcView Group found. Troy Dayton, CEO of The ArcView, the legal cannabis industry’s premier hub for investment, data and progress, said sales could grow 33 percent to $3.5 billion this year and is projected, by GreenWave Advisors, to be worth $35 billion in the year 2020, if legalized by all 50 states and the federal government. This provocative and controversial panel will examine technology’s impact on shaping the future of big business in marijuana.
