Best of Las Vegas - Talk show host Ricki Lake will join Las Vegas politicians on Tuesday for a “marijuana shark tank forum” at Green Valley Ranch Resort.
Following the style of the TV show “Shark Tank,” weed ganjapreneurs
will pitch ideas to judges in hopes of winning seed funds to grow business ideas.
It’s bipartisan. With Lake will be Democrats (U.S. Rep. Dina Titus and Las Vegas’ state senator Tick Segerblom), as well as Republicans, such as New York Assemblyman Dr. Steve Katz, who has vowed to invest millions in weed.
You know, this event would have been crazy a few years ago.
But as strange as this may sound to, say, seniors, America is experiencing a weed revolution.
So everyone sees the writing on the wall that Nevada voters will most likely approve legal recreational marijuana in 2016. Prohibition seems to be coming to its end.
Among Tuesday’s judges are wealthy executives associated with Dixie Brands and Zynga, including powerhouse Tom Bollich. The event is hosted by the ArcView Investor Network of billionaires and techies. There are no show tickets. The event is for ArcView members, invited guests and national media.
