Cannabis Advertising CLE

Join us for this Knowledge Group Cannabis Advertising CLE Webinar. With the recent legalization updates in the large parts of the U.S. and in Canada, the cannabis industry is quickly developing its roots in both markets. The industry grows, but so is its regulation.

The NACB standards are expected to be influential in future state and federal legislation concerning cannabis advertising.
