Cannabis business owners and entrepreneurs face a number of complicated challenges operating in an environment that is highly regulated and subject to conflicting federal and state laws. This seminar addresses business concerns about money—such as banking and finance—and what happens when a cannabis business is in financial distress. Real estate and land use issues are reviewed, as well as the perils and pitfalls of federal tax laws that impact the cannabis industry. Examine state and federal law conflicts, hear what Billy Williams, the US Attorney for the District of Oregon, has to say about the federal position on legalization of marijuana, and delve into criminal defense aspects of cannabis businesses.
