The California Cannabis Supply Chain
June 6, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This presentation will walk the audience through a brief history of how the current supply chain evolved, and the unique challenges that Cannabis Operators are burdened with through each step of the process. It will culminate with a focus on the existing challenges and our efforts to ensure practical regulation and normalization as a pathway to safe access, and a hedge against the ever-growing illicit market.
