The 2015 Cannabis Business Summit And Expo Is Coming To Denver

Category: Events | Posted on Sun, June, 14th 2015 by THCFinder

cannabis business summit and expoI get e-mails and social media messages every day from people asking for advice about the growing marijuana industry. They want to know the trends, who to seek advice from, and opinions about their business ideas. I tell all of them the same thing – go to a reputable marijuana industry event. Sure, you can spend long hours trying to hunt down all of the marijuana industry leaders from various sectors, and trying to get them to respond to questions. However, I think you will find that most of the people that have the best advice are hard to reach because so many people are seeking their advice that they are likely speaking at an event.

Events are good too because you can network with other people that are pursuing similar dreams as yours. You can learn tips and tricks that they have learned along the way, as well as provide your own knowledge to people that are newer to the industry than yourself. Some people scoff at spending hundreds of dollars to attend an event. But what I always tell people is if you can’t spare hundreds of dollars to fine tune your skills and take your business idea to the next level, then chances are you likely won’t succeed in the industry.

There’s simply no other way to meet so many experts in one place, and be able to hear all of them speak on panels and keynote addresses. I can almost guarantee that if you attend a marijuana business event, you will learn things that you didn’t even know you needed to know. I have been running this blog for over five years, and I learn new things at every marijuana business event I attend. Part of that is because there are so many new ideas coming into the industry, and part of that is because the rules, regulations, and environment that surround the industry are constantly evolving. What is true one day may not still be true the next day.

NORML Lobby Day Less Than One Week Away

Category: Events | Posted on Sun, May, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

norml scholarships drug policy reform conference

The NORML Legislative Fly-In in Washington, DC is less than one week away. Please join NORML in this call to action.*

If you’ve not pre-registered for the May 20th cannabis lobbying training and messaging day, please do ASAP by going here. The conference schedule and speaker list are online.

NORML activist and leadership awards, a silent auction and social on Thursday night are all on tap (so to speak…).

Marijuana is becoming legal in our lifetimes. Please join us at the nation’s capitol and help hasten these long-needed public policy reforms by lobbying your elected policy makers.

*There are over 40 million cannabis consumers in the United States (according to government data) and NORML knows that 99.99999% of these direct stakeholders are not going to come to Washington to lobby on cannabis law reforms next week, but, that does not mean they can’t be active on May 21st-NORML Lobby Day-contacting their federal policymakers (one congressperson and two senators)

If you and your cannabis tolerant friends and family can’t join us in Washington, D.C. next week, please consider, for the day, being a ‘virtual lobbyist’ for cannabis law reform. To do so, please visit NORML’s Take Action Center

Thanks in advance and hope to see you next week in Washington (where the possession and use of cannabis by adults over 21 years of age is legal).

Learn How To Legally Invest In The Marijuana Industry

Category: Events | Posted on Sat, May, 2nd 2015 by THCFinder

ryan hurley rose law group marijuanaInvesting in the marijuana industry is a tricky thing. In most other industries, the main things to look for in an investment is if and when you will get a return on your investment, and how much. That is true of the marijuana industry as well, but investing in the marijuana industry also involves the added element of legality. There are many, many good ideas out there in the marijuana industry, but a lot of them involve operating in a legal gray area at best.

There are a lot of details involved in the marijuana industry surrounding legality. The federal government still considers marijuana to be illegal, while some states have medical or recreational provisions (or both). Throw into the mix 280E, banking, insurance, intellectual property, and other considerations, and you have a very complicated situation. A very common e-mail that I receive is ‘I want to invest in this idea, but is it legal?’

If that is you, you should attend the World Cannabis Congress and Business Exposition in New York in June, and hear attorney Ryan Hurley’s presentation. Mr. Hurley will be speaking at the event, and the topic of his presentation is ‘How to Legally Invest in the Cannabis Business.’ You can hear Ryan discuss the legal and practical issues of investing in the marijuana industry with lessons learned from 5 years in the trenches. Federal vs. State Law, 280E, issues regarding non-profit dispensaries, important contract terms for cannabis contracts, and an overview of new markets and opportunities to invest will be discussed.

Ryan Hurley is at the forefront of the marijuana industry, having advised countless businesses in the Arizona medical marijuana industry and beyond. Below is a brief biography about Ryan Hurley, via the Rose Law Group website, of which Ryan is a member:

Ryan Hurley is a partner, chair of Rose Law Group’s Medical Marijuana practice group and head of the Renewable Energy Policy and Research Department at RLG. Ryan concentrates his practice in the areas of medical marijuana, renewable and alternative energy, water law and land use and zoning.

Mr. Hurley is a founding member of the National Cannabis Industry Association, a member of the American Solar Energy Society, has served as the Vice President of the Arizona Solar Energy Industry Association, chair of the Pinal Partnership Renewable Energy Committee, and is a regular speaker at conferences around the country on issues related to both medical marijuana and renewable energy. Ryan is also a Bitcoin enthusiast and helps keep RLG on the cutting edge of new developments in law and technology. Mr. Hurley earned his bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science, and his J.D. in 2005, from The University of Arizona.
