Session 2 - Your Growing Business: Getting the Licenses You Need to Profit in the Cannabis Industry

Members of Preti Flaherty's Cannabis Business Group are joined by guests active in the cannabis, hemp, and CBD industries for a three-part breakfast series to discuss what it takes to properly instigate, operate, and regulate a cannabis-related venture. These seminars present an important opportunity to share ideas, ask questions, express concerns, and gain perspective on one of the most talked-about business issues of our time.

We continue our series on April 10, 2019, as attorneys Dan Walker and Kristin Collins are joined by Jacques Santucci of Nucleus One Cannabis Consulting and special guest Erik Gundersen, Director at Maine's Office of Marijuana Policy, for a discussion on what it takes to be a successful startup and a sustainable ongoing business in the cannabis industry.

Session 2 program topics include:

  • Navigating the regulatory framework
  • Establishing a sound business foundation
  • Maintaining compliance going forward
