Cannabis Basics 2021

The cannabis and hemp industries in the U.S. have exploded in recent years due to increased numbers of states allowing businesses to grow, process, and sell cannabis products for medical and adult use. But one may ask: how are these businesses capable of operating if federal laws prohibit them?

This series provides an essential foundation for any businessperson or professional looking to get smart about the cannabis industry. In the first episode of this series, our panel of experts will bring you up to speed on the complex and constantly evolving legal framework governing cannabis businesses. With this context, our panelists will also discuss the opportunities and challenges of operating in the cannabis space.
