    Event Synopsis:
    The previous years have seen the developing landscape of the cannabis industry in Canada and in the U.S. With the increasing number of states legalizing its recreational and medicinal purposes, emergence of new kinds of cannabis business opportunities in both countries is expected. At the same time, however, cannabis prohibition is not over. The regulatory risk for pot business is higher compared to any other industry. Concerns involving licenses and compliance with state and federal labor laws, are always a possibility.

    As Cannabis legal and regulatory environments in the U.S. and Canada continue to shift, the potential pitfalls are also anticipated to emerge and change. Therefore, cannabis companies and their counsel should keep themselves abreast of the recent developments and updates to ensure compliance and mitigate risks.
