High times: Behind the scenes at a women's pot conference

Meet the attendees of the first Women Grow Leadership Summit, a gathering devoted to bringing more women into the marijuana business.

Now that marijuana has gone from illicit hippie drug to (sort of) legal medicinal plant, pot is beginning to acquire the same trappings that go along with any other industry.
