The passage of Initiative 502 has opened doors to a new industry centered on legal marijuana use. Saturday the Washington Cannabis Institute hosted an event hosted an event to teach would-be growers and sellers what they need to know about the pot business.

“There's a lot of risk in this industry,” George Boyadjian explained.
Boyadjian runs several medical marijuana operations and says the two-day seminar is often a reality check for those who attend.
“Our job is not scare people away from the business, our job is to educate them about how to get into the business legally and what they could be facing if things go wrong,” he said.

Kent felt that now was the time to educate the public and try push a bill through the house to add Florida to the list of 18 states that already have legalized marijuana for medical use.

Months after Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize recreational marijuana, the push to make toking up legal is gaining momentum.
