Silicon Valley’s technology and venture capital firms are starting to make big bets on legal cannabis. Whether it’s Y Combinator, Tao Capital, or TechCrunch Disrupt, pot is hot.
More than a thousand CEOs, VCs, founders, and journalists will gather over the weekend of November 20 for the first-ever New West Summit, the cannabis industry’s first conference devoted to tech, money, and media, with a full two-day lineup featuring 20 panels, 60 panelists, and 36 exhibitors.

And there's no time like the present, because this moment in the history of cannabis legalization will never happen again.
