Clarkson Science Cafe to discuss The Green Rush: The Business of Cannabis Oct. 4
POTSDAM — The Green Rush: The Business of Cannabis is the subject of the next Clarkson University Science Cafe on Tuesday, Oct. 4, in Canton, and Wednesday, Oct. 5 in Potsdam.
One would think that there would be nothing left to discuss regarding a plant first cultivated 12,000 years ago in Central Asia.Despite being consumed in practically every culture, cannabis has a long and harrowed history with health-related issues, abuse and racial injustice, and now it offers us a new business model ... CannaBusiness.
Navigating the laws (federal and state), sociopolitical conversations and twists and turns of moving from the black to the grey market, the cannabis industry is predicted to generate $1.25 billion in tax revenues over the next six years in the state of New York alone.
Join Associate Professor Christa Haifley (Business Administration, SUNY Potsdam) for an engaging evening of discussion on this budding new industry.
Traditionally, Science Cafés have brought together local university and college professors and townspeople in relaxed, informal settings, such as coffeehouses and pubs. The speaker will make a presentation about a topic in their field and, as always, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
The Canton events will be held Tuesdays at 7:15 p.m. in The Rushton Conference Room in the Best Western University Inn at 90 E. Main Street, Canton. The Potsdam events are held on Wednesdays at 7:15 p.m. in the Potsdam Civic Center Community Room at 2 Park St.
