The Wall Street Journal continues a recent trend towards mainstream coverage of the legal cannabis industry, exploring its push towards innovation as it transforms.  The article begins with a discussion of Eaze, the delivery app.  Its founder, Keith McCarty, who has previous tech startup experience leading Yammer, which was bought by Microsoft, says:

Those larger, stodgier companies aren’t always the most innovative.  With startups, we can get in earlier, be agile, and define the industry before the incumbents step in.

The article includes a discussion of Flowhub, Leafly and Potbotics and also includes the perspective of Privateer Holdings CEO Brendan Kennedy.
