WIRE: Sarasota, Florida to host cannabis networking and investment event Thursday

Sarasota, FL – Lawmakers in the state of Florida have agreed on a strategy for legalizing medical marijuana in the Sunshine State, and Sarasota is at the forefront of the movement.

The city has plans to host its first networking and investment event for the legal cannabis industry, dubbed MJ Cannaday, led by Hardcar Securities. With the advancement of medical marijuana in the state, nearly 80 percent of the money in the industry will be made by people who never touch the plant, including legal, insurance, banking, packaging, lighting, energy and more.

The event will be held at the Sarasota Polo Club, 8201 Polo Club Lane, on June 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. and will serve as an educational and networking forum for privately held organizations and investors looking to deploy capital in the dynamic cannabis industry.

On the agenda for the groundbreaking occasion are networking opportunities, an industry overview and panel discussions with experienced industry investors. The main event will include four startup companies in the cannabis industry searching for investors, each presenting a 15-minute pitch.

MJ Cannaday follows the announcement of a groundbreaking agreement among lawmakers in the state of Florida, which calls for:

  • 10 additional growers to be licensed this year, for a total of 17
  • 5 additional growers to be added for each additional 100,000 patients
  • Each grower to open up to 25 dispensaries
  • The legalization of edibles and vaping, but not smoking
  • Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa to receive medical marijuana research funding

Among the event’s top sponsors are Sarasota-based HardCar Security and First Green Bank.

Tickets for Sarasota’s MJ Cannaday start at $99 and can be purchased by clicking here.
