Inside Weedstock, A Conference That Hooks Marijuana Companies Up With Investors

I select the bowl, and the woman places a frosted marijuana pipe into a tote bag reading "First Annual Weedstock Conference."

Despite the title and the promotional paraphernalia, no marijuana is being smoked at this conference. I bet that exceptionally few attendees even smoke cannabis. We are gathered here to celebrate the wonders of a different green substance: money.

"Something like this would've been laughable only a year ago," says Alan J. Brochstein, CEO of 420 Investor and organizer of the Weedstock Conference, a convention for those looking to make a Wall Street profit off the new legal marijuana industry's projected "Green Rush." "But this is not a party. It's a smoke-free hotel."
