Tara Tedrow Launches Marijuana Maven


SEATTLE -- Attorney, columnist and cannabis industry regulatory and economics expert Tara Tedrow this week formally launched Marijuana Maven on the digital media network Maven (ticker symbol MVEN).

Analyzing and understanding the growth of the legal cannabis industry through an investing lens, Tedrow is building a nationwide community around the topic. From the science behind marijuana production to various legal issues, she explores all facets of the industry with an emphasis on the economics.

“The biggest impact of the marijuana industry is economic,” she said. “I believe it’s going to be the fastest-growing industry in North America. Through innovative technology and distribution opportunities I could never match as an independent publisher, Maven is the perfect platform for me to reach a wider audience and to fully engage a national audience.

“Marijuana,” she notes, “isn’t a niche or fad, so why sit back and let others capitalize on these burgeoning markets and the plethora of possibilities for making money?”

Maven CEO James Heckman lauded Tedrow’s cutting-edge work in an investment arena in its early stages and said, “She is providing the type of focused, expert insight that our wide-ranging coalition is being built around. Passion plus knowledge, mixed with outstanding communication skills, is what makes our network special and what makes Tara a great addition to our line up.”

Tedrow, who is based in Florida, is a contributing writer at the Orlando Sentinel and has been featured on Fox News. She joins dozens of award-winning journalists, best-selling authors, top analysts, important causes and foundations who are bringing their organizations to Maven’s coalition of elite content channels.

In addition, she becomes part of Maven’s growing finance and economics category that includes live channels operated by Brad Thomas, Bob Brooks, Sean Hyman, Neale Godfrey, Paul Krake, Mish Shedlock and Norman Wetmore.

Maven is an expert-driven, group media network, whose innovative platform serves, by invitation-only, a coalition of professional, independent channel partners. By providing broader distribution, greater community engagement and efficient advertising and membership programs, Maven enables partners to focus on the key drivers of their business: creating, informing, sharing, discovering, leading and interacting with the communities and constituencies they serve.

Based in Seattle, Maven is publicly traded under the ticker symbol MVEN. The executive team includes digital media pioneers James Heckman and Josh Jacobs, and technology innovators Bill Sornsin and Ben Joldersma. For more insight, head to themaven.net.
