Government Funding For The Cannabis Business

Tune in to this episode to learn more about Government Funding For The Cannabis Business with Shane Pennington of Yetter Coleman. Yetter Coleman is a litigation boutique specializing in high-stakes business and technology litigation around the country. Shane is recognized as a “Texas Rising Star” in Appellate by Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers. He was also a panelist on a recent NCIA webinar “Just Say No – Keep the DEA Out of Cannabis Research,” with NCIA’s Policy Council.

We dive into a lawsuit Shane’s firm is spearheading against the Small Business Administration because cannabis companies, who were otherwise deemed essential in many states during the COVID-19 shutdowns, are not eligible to receive these benefits. We break that down for our listeners and explain what that is, as well as why there’s a lawsuit being spearheaded in the first place.
