Seminar Overview


Our 2018 seminar is now available. Click to view.


Washington State legalized adult use marijuana in 2012, and the state’s recreational marijuana marketplace has been up and running since July 2014 with many changes to the regulations for operators undertaken by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (“Board”). The purpose of this seminar is to explore not only the existing and ongoing issues marijuana businesses face in Washington State, but to also examine those business and litigation issues that are emerging in the marijuana industry, like taxes and 280E, products liability, trademark, securities and investment, and contract issues. Audience members will also receive a “boots on the ground” analysis from two Seattle dispensary operators.

Speakers will cover multiple issues including, but not specifically limited to the ever evolving Federal versus state conflict under President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions; an update on impactful changes in the regulations as set forth by the Board and its sister agencies regarding testing and third party contract disclosures; Landlord/Tenant law and commercial leases as well as land use; an analysis of recreational and medical marijuana businesses and consumers in Seattle and King County; marijuana collections and receivership; trademark, branding, licensing, and limitations on advertising; cross-border update on what’s happening the states of California and Oregon; products liability and packaging and labeling issues; and the ethics surrounding a marijuana business practice. Speakers include industry practitioners and policy experts.
