We ARE Los Angeles' cannabis community. 

On December 3, 2019, TEDx Speaker, Cannabis Entrepreneur and High Times 100 Most Influential Honoree- Rico Tarver will be hosting another night of his unique, live infomercial-style events with amazing speakers plus a great networking community.

Now that we've officially entered the age of CCTT Metrc and 407 retail operators have shown just how vulnerable California cannabis compliance is these days... We've decided for the main event to have track-and-trace supply chain software provider, Distru's CEO Blaine Hattab & Rocky Mountain Cannabis Consulting's CEO BriAnne Ramsay come break down for us what it takes for distributors and manufacturers to become and remain compliant, no matter what your angle is in the CA marketplace.

CCTT Metrc API builder, Green Bits' Founder and Chairman, Ben Curren will be with us as well, dropping knowledge on what it's taken for the clients in 7 Metrc states (12-state reach total) their team's worked with to succeed and thrive through the transition. He's also gonna cover what we can learn from the states who've struggled before us. As an entrepreneur through-and-through with a rock-solid professional team of builders at his back, Ben's core team has steadily built one of the most accomplished and respected platforms in the industry.

Rounding out our interstate all-star speaker lineup will be Ilya Ross of Vicente Sederberg. A seasoned corporate and securities attorney, Ilya helps cannabis companies in all aspects of general corporate counseling and capital markets transactions, with a particular focus on public and private financing, corporate governance, securities law compliance, and strategic partnerships. Since entering the cannabis space, he has assisted cannabis issuers ranging from start-ups to multi-state operators (and everything in between) in structuring complex transactions for regulatory compliance, multi-state application, and growth opportunities.

I cannot wait to see you one more time to close the year out.

Tickets are LIVE!!!


Each Month, CannaGather Los Angeles presents the best of the best in California's flourishing cannabis industry.

All this is done in a one-on-one conversation; on stage in front of 200+ CannaGather Community members.

Each event will be live-broadcasted across several channels and footage will be archived on Food will be included and there’ll also be an open bar for those interested in adult beverages.
