Logan Bowers says being a proprietor of a retail store in the heavily regulated marijuana industry “gives us a chance to work with government and legislators to advance good policy.”

The 34-year-old co-owner of Hashtag in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood left the world of software engineering to help pioneer the cannabis frontier.

“The challenges of figuring out a new business as you go is a lot of fun,” he says. “It’s hard work, but I definitely enjoy the challenge.”

Bowers has quickly become one of the more recognizable faces in the crowded Washington marketplace by remaining at the forefront of industry politics. He was instrumental in starting the Cannabis Organization of Retail Establishments (CORE) and helping to guide the changes that will shape the future of legal marijuana in Washington.

“I think it’s really critical that we make this industry successful, because there are such huge consequences to the War on Drugs and the social justice issues around cannabis,” he says.
