Covid-19 has adjusted the way we live our daily lives. Gaining an “essential services” designation alone was an important milestone for the industry. This was waged on a state by state basis and has required collaboration between city/state governments more broadly. Will these changes, some designed to be temporary, actually be here to stay?
FlowerHire and Leafwire assembled a panel of industry-leading cannabis regulatory and policy professionals to not only discuss the current state of cannabis policy during Covid-19. Some topics touched upon including the following:
- How was this policy conversation handled at the state level and was there a lot of resistance to giving cannabis an essential service designation?
Have cities fallen in line with state guidance in allowing retail and cannabis operations to continue?
What ways have states allowed for a temporary bending of the rules and regulations in this industry to ensure safety for cannabis employees and their customers?
