#IndustryEssentials Webinar Recording – Fireside Chats with NCIA’s Government Relations Team: Thinking It Through – A Discussion on Cannabis & the 2020 Election with Think Tanks

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

In this edition of our Fireside Chat series originally broadcast on Wednesday, August 26, Mike and Michelle were joined by John Hudak of the Brookings Institute and Jeff Vanderslice of the CATO Institute to discuss what this November would mean for the future of the cannabis industry for years to come.

As the 2020 election was fast approaching, there was one thing on everyone’s mind: what would the results mean for cannabis policy? During this webinar, they examined key congressional races, reviewed how the changing makeup of Congress might shift opinions about marijuana, and chatted about what these organizations are researching and writing about next.
