Getting Legalization Right

November 19, 2021 | 2:00 pm | 4A | Operations Management

My goal is to discuss key factors that are necessary from both the state and the operators as Virginia and other eastern states opt in to Cannabis legalization. To help others avoid the mistakes as cannabis pioneers.

I run a vertical cannabis company in Michigan. I am from Virginia and care deeply about Virginia’s entry into the legal cannabis market. I would like to be involved in helping make sure Virginia gets this right. The success for any state adopting legislation is largely driven based on the regulations promulgated by the state officials involved. It is imperative that Virginia learn from the mistakes and successes from other legal markets.
