July Update

Canna Advisors has been in business now for three and a half years. In that time we have worked in 15 state markets and Canada, helped 15 clients obtain licenses to cultivate, process, and dispense cannabis in competitive markets. We have designed over 30 facilities, negotiated countless agreements with companies in the space, mentored dozens of start-ups, and written zero newsletters.

Jay’s Joke of the Month
The difference between a stoned driver and a drunk driver: “Drunk drivers speed through red lights, while stoned drivers sit at stop signs waiting for them to turn green.”
