Boston’s Douglas Leighton has invested in over twenty cannabis-related deals since becoming interested in the industry in 2012. The ArcView Group angel investing network has been a good source of deal flow. Unlike many investors who limit their exposure to companies that are ancillary, Dutchess invests in both ancillary firms and companies that are directly involved in the production or sale of cannabis products. Some of the investments include MassRoots, Dixie Brands, Foria and Roll-uh-Bowl.
