Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

Cannabis legalization is creating significant business opportunities as the black market transitions into a regulated industry. Unfortunately, social injustice already exists in this emerging business. Capital requirements, restrictions on licensing for drug felons, and other factors have taken away opportunities for disadvantaged minorities to succeed in the new legal cannabis market. Join us for a conversation on how the future Texas cannabis industry can tackle these issues early and also address the need to champion criminal justice reform.
