​The growing legal marijuana industry in Colorado has spawned growth in many other industries who in the past have not worked with cannabis…that leads to opportunities and also challenges. There’s an event today, Jan 20th at 2pm at the Denver Athletic Club in Denver aimed at those in the construction industry who are now working in building and designing facilities for legal marijuana. Stan Wagnar, the organizer of today’s event, says the biggest challenge for the construction industry in working with marijuana businesses is the lack of a banking system and having to work in a cash economy.
