In January 2016, The Cannabis Professional Advancement Series was formed with headquarters in Denver, Colorado. They are offering Continuing Legal Education hosted through the Florida Bar. The one-day program includes sessions that provide in depth information into the current cannabis regulatory and business environment. The series will begin in Miami, Florida and will travel up the east coast, then by summer 2016 it will venture into Europe. One of the first stops for CPAS, however, is in our very own Tampa, Florida. This event will be held at the Centre Club on Friday, April 29th from 8:15 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Throughout this event, professionals will educate the attendees in the different aspects of the cannabis industry. The first session is Cannabis Law with Robert T. Hoban. He will be speaking on a comparison of medical versus retail marijuana, the current market conditions and he will give insight on the legal role of each. He will also talk about federal and state roles, model programs and the variance between different programs.
The next session will tackle the financial and investment aspect of cannibis. Alexander Nachman, Aubree Arias, Scott Levy, Tom Quigley, and Robert T. Hoban will be informing the audience about offerings, crowdfunding, the JOBS act, legal requirements and issues for investors.
Before lunch, Adam Hersh of Hunter Business Law, Greg Gershengorin, and Robert T. Hoban will talk about Operating in a Regulatory Environment. Topics include banking, cash management, medical versus retail, tracking seed to sale, lab testing, human resources and employment law issues, real estate, licensing, and compliance within different jurisdictions.
After the break, David C. Kotler, Peter Porcaro, and Michael Minardi will discuss an overview of the current climate for cannabis in the state of Florida, current bills/legislative action/rulings, major risks and opportunities, as well as a strategic municipal breakdown.
Following the Florida State Specific Cannabis Overview is Parallels Between Liquor and Cannabis. Louis J. Terminello and Michael Martinez will lead this conversation. They will compare and contrast the regulation of cannabis and alcohol in Florida as well as regulatory framework in which they operate, the evolution of regulation and the cultural differences of the implementing agencies.
The remaining two sessions are regarding Ethics and Cannabis Business Trends. David C. Kotler, Michael Minardi, and Robert T. Hoban will discuss the ethics and conflicting interests in the industry while Cynthia Salarizadeh, Greg Gershengorin, and Robert T. Hoban discuss the business trends. Lastly, the panel will meet to have an interactive Q&A session followed by the cocktail reception.
