On Thursday and Friday of next week, January 17 & 18, our own Daniel Dersham and Julie Hamill will present at a two-day continuing legal education (CLE) event in San Francisco called The Business of Marijuana in Northern California, to discuss cannabis real estate and land use issues in California. The roster of speakers lined up for this CLE includes an array of lawyers, consultants, and business professionals working with the cannabis industry, and everyone, including non-lawyers, would be well served to attend. For a full event description, including topics, speakers and registration links, click here.
Looking back over the past two years since the passage of Prop 64 legalizing adult-use cannabis in California, it is amazing to see how much things have changed in California cannabis. At this point, the state’s adult-use and medicinal cannabis regulatory regime is fully built out, with thousands of license applications now on file with the state. We are proud to call many of these California producers, processors, wholesalers and retailers our clients, alongside the many investors and ancillary service providers we represent.
Now that the California regulatory groundwork has stabilized, local jurisdictions have continued to open up their markets to the cannabis industry, and the legalization and decriminalization movement has continued to forge ahead, cannabis business activity in California is at an all-time high. Many of these new industry entrants bring skills, capital, and experience from other regulated markets, while others are new to the space. California attorneys and business owners alike need to be familiar with the unique regulatory concepts and industry dynamics that will be discussed on January 17 & 18 in order to best serve the California cannabis industry.
Specific topics at this CLE include: state laws and administrative rules, developments in the highly dynamic federal sphere, and practical approaches to working with and in the cannabis industry. Attendees will hear from consultants, lobbyists, business professionals, and, of course, lawyers aplenty, with specialized experience in fields such as insurance, tax, real estate, litigation, intellectual property, investment, and regulatory compliance.
If you are in or around San Francisco next week, we hope you will join us on January 17 & 18 for a two-day exploration of California cannabis law and business that is both broad and deep.
