This seminar will start by giving context to the current legal landscape of the cannabis industry. With this in mind, Erik will cover recently adopted rules impacting canna-business operations. There are two key players when operating in this highly-regulated industry: true parties of interest (TPIs) and the Washington Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB). Understanding who these players are and the role they play in cannabis business operations is critical.
In this seminar, Erik pulls on his experience as a pioneering marijuana attorney in Washington. He has seen how regulatory code plays out in real-world operations. He has taken note of effective methods to work with the LCB and maintain compliance and will share his insight with attendees. He will delve deeper into the most common violations he sees and tips to be proactive and avoid them. Lastly, Erik will offer rules of thumb for marketing and advertising as a cannabis business. This seminar provides lessons that will help cannabis business owners avoid some of the biggest traps we’ve encountered.
Regulatory code and real-world operations are two very different things. How should businesses approach regulations, employees, landlords, investors, and their clientele and vendors, to make sure they are protected? The goal of this presentation is to have the audience members leave with some basic eye-opening guidance.
Attendees will receive real world guidance on how to maintain compliance, enter into savvy negotiations and avoid major issues – ultimately to create stronger businesses with fewer bumps in the road in this developing industry.
