Seminar Overview

Washington’s legal marijuana industry has been active for more than five years and is rapidly maturing. The market has seen its ups and downs, with winners and losers becoming more apparent. In 2019, Washington lawmakers passed a number of cannabis-related bills that are redefining the legal landscape in Washington. The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board is fighting hard to maintain its grip in enforcing some of the most stringent regulations in the country. That hasn’t stopped out of state and foreign companies from continuing to attempt to get a foothold in Washington.

This seminar aims to explore existing legal issues that are particular to the legal cannabis industry in Washington, while also providing insight into what the future might hold. In addition to hearing from legal practitioners in areas ranging from insurance to tax to land use and administrative appeals, audience members will also receive an update on the rapidly expanding areas of hemp and CBD as well as some boots on the ground analysis from a licensed retailer and from a licensed cultivator and processor. The speakers come from a wide variety of backgrounds but will all focus on practical advice over esoteric legalese.
