Cannabis stocks varied wildly in their performances in 2015 and investing in legal cannabis companies will continue to be a hot button topic in 2016. Many financial experts are committed to the potential of the “Green Rush” bubble while others are pessimistic about marijuana-related public companies given the legally tenuous terrain. 


Join leading securities and corporate law attorney Gregory Sichenzia as he discusses the financial and legal implications of investing in public cannabis companies. Mr. Sichenzia reviews the commercial significance of recently enacted and/or rejected marijuana-related legislation, the risks and rewards that investors face in a market made volatile by state and federal legal conflict and the key considerations for investors and marijuana companies seeking to go public. 


Learning Objectives:

I.     Identify the existing capital landscape for public marijuana companies

II.    Understand pertinent legal issues including the conflicting state and federal policies surrounding the legal status of marijuana and the effects of unpredictable regulation for public cannabis companies and their investors

III.   Recognize the future of investing in public cannabis companies through an assessment of how and if upcoming legal reforms can reduce the risks of legal cannabis investments

IV.   Determine what can potentially differentiate successful cannabis public companies from the rest of the market
