Symposium to Explore Economic Opportunity of Cannabis & Hemp Production in Indian Country

The inaugural Tribal Cannabis & Hemp Symposium, November 1-2, at Tulalip Resort Casino, will address one of the most complex and potentially most profitable industries in Indian country: cannabis and hemp production.  

Presented by Victor-Strategies and Pechanga.net, it will explore the economic opportunity for tribes and offer step-by-step production roadmaps. At least 11 keynote speakers will discuss the manifold issues regarding legalized marijuana production and sales in Indian country, explore the pros and cons of the new industry, and identify success scenarios for tribal engagement. Conversations will shed light on how cannabis policy decisions — regarding the production, sales, regulation and taxation of legal recreational and medical marijuana — will determine the level of success in Native American economies.

“The bad information being disseminated around Indian Country on cannabis and hemp is very disconcerting” said Victor Rocha, president of Victor-Strategies and editor of Pechanga.net, the news site founded in 1998. “Reservations are being raided, consultants arrested, and tribes are losing millions of dollars in investments and working capital. At the TC&H symposium, we will separate the myth from the fact of this burgeoning industry.”

The symposium is targeted at tribal leaders, regulators, attorneys, investors, and anyone wanting to know more about the new economic opportunity for Indian country.

The National Indian Cannabis Coalition (NICC) is sponsoring the symposium. An educational resource, the NICC provides guidance for building a self-sustaining cultivation project from seed to sale. It’s a central source for accurate information on the multi-layer process of financing, designing and constructing an effective cannabis cultivation and manufacturing enterprise. The organization also educates elected officials on the emerging regulated cannabis industry while advocating for parity on behalf of Indian country.

The Tribal Cannabis & Hemp Symposium isn’t the first major cannabis event hosted at Tulalip Resort Casino. In February 2015, the tribal casino in Tulalip, Washington, near Seattle, served as the site of the first Tribal Marijuana Conference.
