As the region’s leading voice of business, we believe that the cannabis industry should be recognized and legitimized through local ordinances, so that local laws are consistent and aligned with new state regulations with regard to cannabis policy.
The local cannabis industry generates an estimated $105 million in annual revenue that supports the regional economy. During the fiscal year 2016-2017, registered cannabis collectives in San Jose have served approximately 245,000 patients and completed over 1.5 million transactions.
“Cannabis is an emerging industry that faces unique business challenges,” said Matthew Mahood, President and CEO of The SVO. “We wanted to provide a way for members of this burgeoning industry to engage with the Silicon Valley business community at-large, provide insight and create business connections.”
