Can Do: Growing Montana's cannabis industry with Richard Eggers

Richard Eggers

In Montana, recreational cannabis has been legal since January 1st, 2022. Montana monthly sales are exceeding $13M, yielding $2.5M in state taxes. The heavily regulated industry has 10 tiers of operation, designed to keep growing operations small and manageable.

What is the status of the industry nationally? How has the rollout been received in Montana? What are consumers buying? What does the future look like, particularly with our state’s growing population and increased tourism?

Joining us today on Can Do to discuss all of this is Richard Eggers, owner and horticulturist of Bitterroot Cannabis Company. Richard has been in the industry in Montana since 2004 and understands the business from the ground up.

Arnie Sherman's experiences as an entrepreneur, trade negotiator, strategic advisor, college professor and as the host of podcast, radio and television programs give him a singular perspective on life and the business world.
