DENVER, April 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Amy Poinsett, Co-Founder and CEO of MJ Freeway, a business software company for the cannabis industry, will be presenting at #CatoDigital, which is part of a series of events highlighting the intersection of tech, social media, and the ideas of liberty. The panel, taking place on April 27th in Washington D.C., will also include Taylor West, Deputy Director of the National Cannabis Industry Association and Betty Aldworth, Executive Director of Students for Sensible Drug Policy.
The Cato Institute is a public policy research organization dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace. Its scholars and analysts conduct independent, nonpartisan research on a wide range of policy issues. The upcoming event, High Tech: How the Burgeoning Legal Cannabis Industry Is Harnessing Technology, will speak to ways the cannabis industry is mobilizing the power of technology, as well as the legal barriers that still stand in the way.
Amy Poinsett will discuss how she and Co-Founder, Jessica Billingsley, entered the industry at an early stage, the ways that MJ Freeway's seed-to-sale tracking technology has met the needs of stringent compliance regulations across the world, and how the industry has created a unique need for specific business solutions. Poinsett will also address some of the legal challenges that business operators face.
