Learn What The Best Practices Are For Operating A Licensed Dispensary At The Cannabis Business Summit

There was a time in America when simply opening a dispensary was enough to succeed. All one had to do in a lot of areas was just be the first to open a dispensary in that area, and success was almost guaranteed. Times are a lot different now. States seem to fall in one of two categories – either there is a low barrier to entry and there are dispensaries everywhere with a high level of competition (Oregon), or there is an extremely high barrier to entry and a very stringent licensing process (New York). Either way, the days of simply signing a lease on a commercial storefront and putting some full jars on the shelves and instantly crushing it are going the way of the dinosaur.

The fact of the matter is you have to know your stuff. The average medical cannabis consumer is becoming more sophisticated every day. Some patients want certain strains in certain forms in certain dosage. Some patients want a variety. All patients want a place that is safe, professional, and affordable. Regulators want to make sure everything is in compliance at all times, and the amount of rules, regulations, and laws are extensive when it comes to running a dispensary in most areas. In addition to outdated federal regulations (280e anyone!?), dispensary owners need to know city, county, and state regulations as well.

We are ten days out from NORML’s 2016 Conference and Congressional Lobby Day and we are excited to share with you the full itinerary! Have you registered to attend? We have some fun events planned and it would be a shame for you to miss out!

Our ‘pre-registration’ social will be held at Eden Lounge the night of Sunday, May 22nd where we will have the place to ourselves for private mingling and relaxing. We’ll be welcoming those of you who are travelling from out of town and getting you checked into the event so you won’t have to worry about a thing on Monday morning. This party is free for those who pre-register for our Conference and Lobby Day but for those who wait till the last minute, you will have to pay a cover charge.

On Tuesday, May 24, during our morning reception on the Hill we have confirmed the participation of three prominent members of Congress: Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) and Congresswoman Suzan Delbene (D-WA). Each of them will take time to address NORML’s attendees. This is a unique chance to meet with and hear directly from some of our nation’s most important marijuana law reformers in an intimate setting. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and gain insight into the progress we are making at the federal level. Have you ever had the opportunity to speak directly with a member of Congress? Now is your chance!

Attend The Free (Yes, FREE!) Virtual Cannabis Entrepreneur Summit

Category: Events | Posted on Mon, May, 9th 2016 by THCFinder

virtual cannabis entrepreneur summitOne of the coolest things in the cannabis space that I have seen since co-creating this blog in 2010 was the first ever Virtual Cannabis Health Summit. I have been to events, and have seen a lot of educational material online, but up until the point of that summit I had never seen so many true cannabis experts in one place, spreading world class knowledge for free. Usually people have to pay out the nose to get that level of info from that caliber of speakers. But with the Virtual Cannabis Health Summit, not only did it not cost a dime to view live, you could watch the whole thing from the comfort of your home over the web.

I am not a big fan of traveling. In fact, I despise it. In a perfect world I would just sit at home all day and rarely leave. But my love for cannabis outweighs my distaste for traveling, so I make it to events and act social whether I like it or not. For people like me, a virtual summit that I can view from home is outstanding. There is another summit coming up, also put on by Green Flower Media, later this month. The focus of this summit is how to enter the cannabis industry, or for those already in the industry, how to take your pursuit(s) to the next level.

As with the last summit, this summit is jam packed with cannabis experts. TRUE experts. A lot of events will tout their speakers as being cannabis experts, but a lot of the time I have never heard of the people before. I don’t want to downplay some of the speakers’ skills out there, but there’s a big difference between someone who is a true expert and someone who is simply ‘in the industry.’ The Virtual Cannabis Entrepreneur Summit has some straight cannabis industry geniuses like Steve DeAngelo, Patrick Rea, Troy Dayton, Aaron Justis, and Kris Krane to name just a handful. Those are names that I look to for wisdom and vision into the future of the cannabis industry.
