M&A: Closing the Deal Compliantly

Bob will be presenting the CQC Opening Session: M&A: Closing the Deal Compliantly. Bob will offer a deep dive into mergers and acquisitions in the cannabis industry. Addressing compliance and quality considerations within M&A, Bob will highlight the ins and outs of one of the most lucrative avenues not just for cannabis business owners and operators, but also for seasoned investors and those looking to enter this line of business for the first time.

Bob will be presenting on Tuesday, Oct. 17 9:00AM – 9:45AM.


Crossing the Line: Winning Strategies for Multi-State Expansion

Sumer will be presenting Crossing the Line: Winning Strategies for Multi-State Expansion. Forward looking while highlighting how to take an active role in the present, this presentation will focus on how recent lawsuits (such as those in New York with the Dormant Commerce Clause) along with other state partnerships (such as California and Oregon) could propel cannabis interstate commerce forward. Sumer will discuss what interstate commerce means for the cannabis industry overall from an individual, business, and legal perspective. Interstate commerce is particularly important for regional commerce, such as the northeast, where neighboring states from New York to New Jersey to Connecticut could see a greater flow of cannabis trade across their state lines. How these potential regional programs would work (from packaging and labeling requirements to strategizing your geographic footprint for regional success) and what roadblocks they would face would also be detailed.

Sumer will be Presenting on Wednesday, Oct. 18 11:30AM – 12:15PM ET.
