Oregon Cannabis SignIn Oregon’s short stint as a recreational state, the dust has not yet settled on its cannabis policies and regulations. This presents some challenges for businesses to stay ahead of the curve. Join us to discuss best practices on regulatory, business and operational issues to promote your company’s long-term growth and success.

Growing Up Green: Learning How to Blossom in Oregon’s Budding Marketplace will provide information on what every cannabis license holder needs to know, including:

  • Attracting investors
  • Employment
  • Real estate
  • Insurance
  • Taxes
  • Lessons learned from the Washington market

Also, the OLCC’s Portland Metro Public Safety Manager will be on hand to discuss regulatory issues and answer your questions.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND. Producers, processors, retailers, and ancillary businesses.

NETWORK. We will round off the day with a happy hour networking reception with some drinks and nosh.
