The CA cannabis industry has been in crisis mode for years. I see a silver lining with this outbreak. Join this meeting of the minds.
About this Event
This outbreak has changed everything and everyone but maybe it doesn’t have to be all bad. The California Cannabis Industry has been a Pot Mess for many years. Maybe we can now turn this ship around. We’ve decided to do a virtual conference ASAP to bring great minds together to discuss the new challenges the outbreak is adding to the industry, but more importantly find ways to fix what is broken with new tools that this pandemic is affording us.
Most importantly, SF and other cities are declaring that cannabis retail is an essential service and deserves to not apply to the “shelter in place” orders that many local jurisdictions are declaring. If we effectively make that argument to local elected officials that have commercial bans, they may see the compassionate and economic benefits of opening up their cities and counties.
The conference is on April 1, 2020, from 9 AM to 5:15 PM. It will be hosted virtually and you will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions, fill out surveys, get inspired, hear from experts, and network with your peers.
