Cannabis 101: What Entrepreneurs Need to Know

Cannabis laws are rapidly changing across the country, reflecting growing acceptance of marijuana’s efficacy in treating some medical disorders and increased tolerance for its recreational use. Many entrepreneurs have been attracted to the burgeoning cannabis industry, but it’s not only would-be growers or dispensary owners who need to understand “cannabusiness.” The enormous change represented by cannabis acceptance has implications – and offers new opportunities – for companies of all kinds. At our September 10 program, we’ll hear from Steven Schain, Senior Counsel at Hoban Law Group, an international practice devoted to cannabis and hemp law. In addition, a panel of business owners with experience integrating cannabis-related workstreams into their companies will tell their stories and answer your questions.

  • Steven Schain is Senior Counsel at Hoban Law Group, an international practice devoted to cannabis and hemp law. Steve represents entities, governments, and individuals in choosing a structure, preparing and submitting license applications, regulation, compliance and litigation, and drafting legislation.

  • Riley Cote is a former Philadelphia Flyer who now runs the hemp company Body Check Wellness and the foundation Hemp Heals Foundation, which supports sustainable agriculture, sustainable health, and clean natural medicine, while focusing on a holistic approach to optimum health.

  • Victor Guadagnino Jr. is Chief Business Development Officer of the regional dispensary Keystone Canna Remedies and a former internal medicine and cardiology practice bioethicist.

  • Lindy Snider is a cannabis-business-development expert and founder/CEO of Lindiskin, a skin-care product line for cancer patients. Lindy previously held senior positions for the Philadelphia Flyers, Comcast-Spectator, and the Wells Fargo Center. She also founded Athletes for Care, which empowers athletes to improve global standards of health, safety, and quality of life.
