Free Webinar: Canna Business Trends: Success During and After the Pandemic
September 14, 2020 | Online :: Central Time
The cannabis industry is always changing. From evolving regulatory requirements, to the rise of new cannabis brands, change is constant. The most successful canna businesses have survived partly because of their abilities to adapt. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced all businesses to shift their models to survive. In many ways, the cannabis industry was uniquely prepared for the crisis. Even during the economic recession, many canna businesses are posting record breaking sales.
The pandemic has taken a toll on city budgets. Many cities are beginning to come onboard for cannabis licensing, as they look for ways to increase tax and licensing for revenue purposes. Industry insiders are predicting increasing opportunities in local cannabis markets within the next 12-18 months as cities look for ways to ramp up revenue. During this free webinar you’ll get an overview of realistic taxing and licensing expectations during this unique time. This one-hour session will be packed with content, including input on:

- How to Advocate for Licensing in Your Area
- How to Create the Change You Want
