The U.S. cannabis industry has exploded over the past decade. With every emerging industry comes legislation, rules, investors, and questions. The legalized cannabis industry is no different. And as more states in the U.S. adopt adult use and medical cannabis laws and regulations, it is incumbent on businesspeople and professionals to educate themselves about the challenges and opportunities facing the industry, as well as how to navigate the legal landscape governing cannabis businesses, whether those businesses “touch the plant,” or not. Thankfully, we’re here to help.
In this series, we provide an essential foundation for any businessperson or professional looking to get smart about the cannabis industry. In our first episode, we present an overview of the cannabis industry and the competing legal frameworks at state and federal levels.
