November Event: What’s all the buzz about energy use and recreational cannabis?

November 16, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


It’s been two years since Oregonians’ voted to follow in our northern neighbor’s footsteps and legalize recreational cannabis use. This week our southern neighbor along with Massachusetts, Nevada, and Maine also voted to legalize recreational cannabis use, indicating that the energy use profile of cannabis is likely to be of increasing interest in the coming years. There are many lessons to be learned from the Northwest on the energy impacts of recreational cannabis production.

Please join us on Wednesday, November 16th, at McMenamins Ringlers Pub (1332 W Burnside, Portland) at 5:30 PM where John Morris from Morris Energy Consulting will provide an in-depth presentation on the impacts that recreational cannabis production has had in the State of Oregon. Key themes will include energy impacts and policy, state sales, pending county applications providing three case studies, and an overview of the Resource Innovation Institute.

About the speaker:

John Morris has worked in the Northwest on energy efficiency since early 2004. Over that time, he has gained a deep appreciation for the history of energy efficiency in the Northwest and the unique roles that stakeholder organizations play in this industry. It is this rich history of energy efficiency that inspires his vision for the next generation of energy innovation that we are embarking upon. John is the founder and CEO of Morris Energy Consulting and is the co-founder of Resource Innovation Institute.
