Future Outlook will include multiple panel discussions with over 15 professionals with backgrounds in finance, technology, government, and medical research. With the new Trump Administration, Jeff Sessions nominated as Attorney General, and 8 states legalizing some form of cannabis, 2017 is set to be an historic year for the cannabis industry.
