Networking Lunch(Panel Discussion) Many indigenous nations have expressed an interest in the cannabis industry a means of economic opportunity and many are already open for business. In Canada there are varying degrees of acceptance and openness to doing business with cannabis companies as well as varying degrees of legislative understanding. This intimate discussion with some of the most respected indigenous business leaders and cannabis executives will guide you through the path forward and cover everything from putting together balanced deals, to navigating cultural sensitivities, band by-laws, and more.
