Service Solutions: Taking Your Profits Higher – Navigating the Maze of Cannabis Marketing

NCIA’s Service Solutions series is our sponsored content webinar program which allows business owners the opportunity to learn more about premier products, services and industry solutions directly from our network of established suppliers, providers and thought leaders.

In this edition originally aired on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 we were joined by Fox Rothschild LLP whose national cannabis team discussed discussed how agencies and companies can comply when marketing products.

A successful business relies on marketing and advertising to grow and bring in new customers. But what happens when those promotional efforts are heavily regulated or even restricted? These are questions and hurdles cannabis businesses face, but there are ways to navigate this maze.

Join our presenters Josh Horn, Bill Bogot and Vijay S. Choksi, as they discuss;

• How agencies and companies can comply when marketing products;

• Provide an analysis of state laws and regulations; and

• Identify trends in how cannabis products are being sold and advertised.
