Michael LatulippeFounder of Open Cannabis
Michael Latulippe is the Founder of Open Cannabis and was the driving force behind its creation. Being a software engineer, originally Open Cannabis was supposed to be a community organization trying to make cannabis data from dispensaries public so that developers could use API's to develop better medical cannabis applications. Michael announced the organization at Google's San Francisco offices during a Database Meetup and received quite an applause from the audience. Because he also organizes some of the largest software engineering groups in the country, he decided Open Cannabis would focus on event organizing and initiatives in the city on New York as well as San Francisco. Linking culture with cannabis is currently the endeavor in which Open Cannabis and Michael are taking part.
