Bring your lunch and join us for our first event in the 2014 Intern Policy Series Forum! Recreational marijuana is now legal in Colorado and Washington state, and the legalization of cannabis for both medical and recreational uses seems likely to continue on a state by state basis in the coming years. But how do you regulate the market for a product that is legal at the state level but still federally prohibited? As investors scramble to take part in the so-called Green Rush, how will the cannabis business grow?
PATRICK RADDEN KEEFE, Senior Fellow at The Century Foundation and Staff Writer at The New Yorker.
