Blaine Hatab (@blainehatab), CEO of Distru, joins Erik to talk all about the cannabis space. He explains what he is doing at Distru, how he got into the business and why the cannabis space is ripe with opportunity. He talks about the changes that have occurred in the market over the past several years with legalization in various localities and why that has led to a challenge for companies trying to comply with varying and changing rules. He discusses the different types of companies that exist currently, including his assessment of which ones will succeed and which will face challenges. Blaine also talks about the wide variety of uses of the cannabis plant, including in industrial materials, and some of the potential changes to the market with more widespread legalization of recreational use.
