The latest industry to reap tech’s rewards: the Cannabis industry. Just a few weeks ago,? fact, Privateer Holdings secured a $75 million investment to achieve its mission, “to create, incubate, and to acquire companies in the cannabis industry.”

This is a positive step forward in the fight for legalization as is attracting a new breed of investor: the Snoop Dogg Weed Start up investment fund.

What’s interesting is how marketers will react to this industry. My favorite marketing gurus at Hubspot put out a marijuana marketing guide to dealing with some legality issues this past April at 4:20pm. 🙂 Since each state has such interesting challenges, my belief is that it will prompt a nation-level conversation sooner than we think.

Its interesting to see how this industry has blossomed with the help of techies.
