 Across the United States, taboos that involvement in the cannabis industry might bruise a company’s brand are receding.  States and cities continue to expand their acceptance of medicinal or recreational cannabis use.  Investors, banks, growers, lessors, and others are engaged in the business, carefully considering involvement and positioning themselves for cannabis market growth.  The conventional wisdom is that California is the world’s largest cannabis market and offers business opportunities in a wide range of sectors. 

 While cannabis is an industry in its infancy, join us Wednesday, April 3, as our panel will discuss developments and issues impacting this market including financing alternatives, branding, national and local legislative initiatives, entity and transaction structures, intellectual property and other legal considerations, insurance, accounting, and other operational considerations. 

 Whether a grower, a landlord, a financial services provider, investor, insurer or other participant, the building blocks of the industry are being identified and it is rapidly moving forward. 

 This conference has limited attendee capacity.  Registration should be completed by no later than Tuesday, March 26.  Confirmation of attendance will be circulated thereafter. 

Join us at the Westlake Village Inn on Wednesday, April 3rd, 7:00 - 9:00 AM, to hear a lively discussion on these topics and more.
