Description

For years, the cannabis industry -- both marijuana and hemp -- have navigated regulatory uncertainties. Now, with the impacts of the COVID pandemic and a seeming lack of regulatory progress in full force, what does the future hold for the cannabis industry?

In this CLE session, we will discuss the past, present and future of the cannabis industry including topics such as pending and anticipated legislative and regulatory measures; restrictions and impacts upon corporate transaction, IP protection, and regulatory and product liability issues; interjurisdictional concerns as the cannabis industry globalizes; and pragmatic counsel for client weathering the storm along the way. Despite all of the uncertainties and bumps in the road throughout the industry, plenty of opportunity remains.
