As prohibition comes to an end, many people are finding their way to cannabis for its recreational, therapeutic and medicinal benefits. The high demand has fueled cannabis to be one of the fastest growing industries in the country. This rapid growth has brought to light a conversation around environmental impacts, pesticide contamination and how to protect the pioneering small farmers of the industry. This panel explores the key environmental issues around cannabis production through a lively discussion with sustainability leaders and industry experts.

This panel was the Friday evening main stage plenary for the 2017 Convergence
