Michael Latulippe

Founder 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.

We have chapters in San Francisco and NYC.

San Francisco Chapter

The San Francisco Chapter was the original chapter announced at a Database Tech Meetup within Google's offices in San Francisco as a community driven software engineering project to bring data about marijuana aggregated from several sources into easily readable and accessible open data API's. This chapter now focuses mainly on medical cannabis issues.
