Women Grow, a professional network that supports and trains female entrepreneurs in all segments of the rapidly growing marijuana industry, recently held its first Leadership Summit in Colorado, drawing 121 women from 20 states, ranging from 23 to 68 that included lawyers, doctors, farmers, dispensary owners, research scientists, financiers, and CEO’s of companies, one of which is valued at million. Now that marijuana is medically legal in 23 states plus the District of Columbia and fully legal in four, Women Grow asserts that it’s time for women to claim their place. We take a look at the female leaders of the cannabis industry on the Lip News with Jose Marcelino Ortiz and Nik Zecevic.
