Like the tech bubble, the Cannabis sector is a fast-paced business ahead of legislation. With more states across the US, and countries worldwide, legalizing this controlled substance for medical and recreational use, CPA’s will have more clients investing or expanding their business into this sector, and need to be prepared for the complex ever-changing requirements.

Whether you are already working in this niche, or looking to expand into it, The Cannabis Industry conference offers a variety of sessions over 2 days, covering all aspects of the industry including tax, practice management and supply chain. Hot topics include:

  • Cannabis 101
  • Cannabis vs. Hemp vs. CBD
  • Building a Cannabis Practice and Responsibilities for Practitioners
  • Cannabis: Impact of Congress on the Industry, including AICPA efforts
  • Cannabis Risks to Consider
