Lunchbox Webinar Series Presents: 

Suitability Licensing in a Regulated, Legal Cannabis Industry

Legal cannabis is one of the fastest growing industries in the nation with more than 200,000 jobs in 29 states. As legalization becomes more commonplace, whether it’s legal or medical, the opportunity for risk increases.

The latest installment of AmericanChecked’s Lunchbox Learning Webinar Series covers the challenges cannabis businesses face as they enter into the highly regulated industry and how to set up a framework of oversight and accountability to protect their enterprise. From corporations to investors to individual hires, suitability background checks and licensing is crucial to maintaining the integrity and accountability of marijuana commerce.

The webinar will be hosted by Dave Vialpando, Executive Director of the Santa Ysabel Tribal Cannabis Regulatory Agency, on July 11, 2018, at 11:30 a.m.
