We met a week or so back at Brighton resort in Utah.  I’m reaching to let you know I love the podcast and love the content. I’m very happy to have met you and heard about your podcast. Like I mentioned at the resort everything you are talking about is super fascinating to me. I’ve actually been wanting to pursue a job in the cannibals industry and was wondering if you had any advice for someone looking for entry level positions in the industry.


Hi Tony,

I appreciated the podcast. Thanks. G

I think your key points are valid:

  • importance of analytics
  • differences between states

Suggestion… your audience probably wants to know more about where the data comes from and why. you may want to spend time explaining the various sources of information.

There is a ton of numbers floating around out there and maybe a good tutorial on sources of data might be of interest. Or maybe you have addressed that earlier or in a different manner? But I think new folks considering entering the cannabis industry would appreciate your input on which sources of information to trust.

All the Best,


Just watched your interview with Conal. I think it is good. bottom line I got… it is tough for people to understand repeatability in product is tough right now. And relying upon experts to help explain differences and similarities between brand names is important. I think this podcast helps explain why there is allot of confusion out there right now.
