Fireside Chats w/ NCIA’s Gov. Relations Team | 3.31.21 | Lessons Learned From Canada

The Fireside Chat series of NCIA’s #IndustryEssentials webinars are an exclusive monthly opportunity for NCIA members to hear from our government relations team and guests about the latest developments in federal policy LIVE.

Join Mike and Michelle and their guests this month as they take a deep dive into lessons learned from Canada, including ways to reform laws, spotting red flags, and crafting regulations.

In 2018, Canada became the second country in the world to formally legalize the cultivation, possession, acquisition and consumption of cannabis and its by-products. While shifting political dynamics, successful ballot initiative measures, and the entrepreneurial drive of American small businesses may have started the regulated global cannabis market, the U.S. is quickly falling behind as that market expands internationally.

You can also expect to hear about raising capital, the stock and public markets, and the challenges Canada has had with bringing illicit activities into the legal market. Overall, you can expect to hear do’s and don’ts, lessons learned, and advice from international cannabis industry professionals.
