The Cannabis Industry has grown dramatically in recent years in response to expanding legalization. Currently there are 37 states and Washington, D.C., who allow medical-use marijuana, and 18 states and D.C. allowing adult recreational use. With many states jumping on board the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act in April which is a proposed act to remove cannabis as a “scheduled” drug under the Controlled Substances Act. Harry Brelsford of The CannaTech Group sits down with Luis Alvarez of Alvarez Technology Group to discuss the changes in the Cannabis industry and the knowledge he has gained.
After lecturing on IoT and Cannabusiness on the big stage at the early May 2019 ChannelPro SMB Forum, we caught up with Luis Alvarez, president of Alvarez Technology Group. Based on Central California, an agricultural hot bed that has diversified to include cannabis growers and producers, Alvarez’s secret to success is IoT. Along the way we discuss the industry landscape including market size, government, politics and much more. Finally – watch towards the end to learn what the golden ticket is!
