One of the most growing industries in the U.S as of the last decade has been that of the Cannabis industry. With numerous states all over the U.S deciding to legalize marijuana both medically and recreationally many doors have opened to welcome a new type of business into the entrepreneur-sphere. Chip Baker was one of those people who began riding the Cannabis industry wave when it was just a ripple in the ocean. Though he knew that once more and more people joined the industry he needed to make a niche for himself to avoid too much competition.

With the industry coming alive as more and more states continue to legalize marijuana, Chip wanted to come on this interview and give our viewers an inside look at this “growing” new marketplace.
