Eric Gaston,


Evergreen Market

Eric believes the cannabis industry in Washington should maintain a focus on brand diversity and remain an industry leader in quality by fostering an environment that enables small farms to thrive. As attorney, he’s used to fighting for what he believes in, and has done so since he began working in the cannabis industry in 2014.

“There are no better, more talented, and more passionate growers, processors, and retailers anywhere else in the world. Washington is famous for Amazon, Microsoft, Boeing, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and apples - cannabis should be on this list, too.”

Eric also serves as a member of the Renton Chamber of Commerce.
