I received the following message and figured I'd pass it along for our Illinois readers or anyone else that might be interested:
Please join legal experts and potential business owners for the first-ever seminar on the Illinois medical cannabis bill. The new policy, which allows for regulated cannabis stores and grows in Illinois, is expected to be signed by Governor Pat Quinn imminently.
Speakers will discuss the new Illinois law and business specifics including licensing, taxes, insurance, and, importantly, how successful medical cannabis dispensaries -- or "dispensing organizations" -- can best serve patients. The seminar is presented by Vicente Sederberg, LLC, whose staff has helped hundreds of medical cannabis businesses around the country form and stay compliant. Speakers will include experts in medical cannabis business, law, and operations, as well as tax and banking professionals.
"With up to 60 dispensing organizations and 22 cultivation centers opening in Illinois, it is crucial that prospective business owners learn all facets of this new law, in order to make the transition as smooth as possible for this state's communities and patients," said Brian Vicente, a founding partner of Vicente Sederberg, LLC.
Patient scholarships are available for Illinois medical cannabis patients. Patients who are interested in attending this seminar at a reduced price may e-mail Nicola@VicenteSederberg.com for more details.
