In this course, attendees will examine the interconnectedness of social equity initiatives and basic legal principles (i.e. justice, equity, etc.) This program will encourage diversity of thought, give cannabis attorneys more to consider when advising diverse populations and ask participants to walk a mile in a social equity applicant's shoes. Attendees will leave this course with a deeper understanding (and appreciation) of why social equity programs exist, including their role in undoing the harms of cannabis prohibition, how they serve diverse clients and promote equal access to justice, and why social equity programs are necessary.
This panel will provide real life practical solutions to the question the cannabis industry faces: how do we level the playing field in a highly regulated, highly competitive industry? We will discuss how to practically implement social equity efforts beyond what states and municipalities have been offering and discuss recommendations for federal legalization.
