Bruce Barcott is a Guggenheim Fellow and author of “Weed the People: The Future of Legal Marijuana in America.” In 42 days, Barcott will be a featured speaker at the Marijuana Investor Summit in San Francisco to discuss his forecasts for the marijuana market in 2016 and co-host The Great Marijuana Debate, sponsored by ProCon.org.
Barcott has been recognized for his journalism and his provocative observations regarding the end of prohibition and the multi-faceted implications of legalization.
According to Barcott, “This is one of the most exciting about-faces in recent American history … and it has profound lessons to teach us about taboos, assumptions, evidence, prejudice, mistakes, and the factors that lead people to change their minds.”
As a science writer for more than 20 years, Barcott has covered topics ranging from global warming to risk calculus to the science of camouflage. He led National Geographic’s coverage of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and accompanied James Cameron’s 2012 expedition to dive the Mariana Trench in the South Pacific, the deepest spot in the ocean.
This is the second Marijuana Investor Summit, following the premier event in Denver in April of 2014, which drew more than 1,000 people and 100 exhibitors. The Marijuana Investor Summit in San Francisco is a unique opportunity to learn about the state of cannabis in California directly from those shaping the legal landscape.
