The evening kicked off with Ignite Talks, featuring members of The Cannabist staff — sharing where we are going in relation to the industry and all it has to offer. This segued into a Q&A session with our editor-in-chief, Ricardo Baca, and general manager Lance Lambert.

Festivities continued with a 2-hour open bar social, complete with hors d’oeuvres. Guests used this time to cruise several industry booths, mingle with fellow guests and catch a private tour of The Cannabist Show set, located in the DPtv Studio. The night was be topped off with a screening of the feature documentary film “Rolling Papers” that follows the first year of Colorado’s recreational marijuana sales and how cannabis journalism has grown along with legalization.
