Offit Kurman Cannabis Attorney, Jason Klein, will host “Medical Cannabis Clinical Trials” with presenter Christina DiArcangelo Puller, CEO and Founder of Affinity BioCeuticals (First PA Cannabis Biotech), who will share her insight on medical cannabis clinical trials.
The presentation will include:
- Why clinical trials are important in the evolving cannabis industry
- What the cannabis industry should do to promote responsible product claim while the FDA/FTC is silent

- Why medical cannabis will be important for current conditions as an alternative to existing treatments
- Eliminating addiction by supplementing medical cannabis for opioids
Over the next few years, there are very few sectors of the economy projected to grow by triple digits. Analysts are predicting the legal marijuana industry will grow 500 percent over the next five years.
With growth comes a need for capital. But borrowing money in the cannabis space can be an onerous and challenging task.
Given marijuana’s federal illegal designation, many bank loans are hard to come by for cannabis shops. While financing is available, it is not cheap. Some would say that ten years ago, you’d have to go to a loan shark to fund a cannabis business and that lender may break your legs for missing a loan payment.
Cannabis attorney Jason Klein hosts this webinar with guest Michael Richardson from Summit Peak Credit. Richardson has over 30 years of experience in mortgage loan production, valuation, quality control, compliance, forensics, fraud prevention and change management. With this knowledge, he was instrumental in developing the specialty lending platform for Summit Peak Credit, an asset based non-bank lender for the legal cannabis industry.
August 4, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Robinson will discuss the importance of performing zoning due diligence in connection with site selection and leasing of properties for all facets of the medical cannabis industry. He will specifically be covering issues related to working with government officials to develop and implement effective regulations, reviewing existing regulations where they exist, and what to expect during the development process. The discussion will be aimed at landlords, tenants, owners, operators, and investors in the industry and those interested in getting involved.
Clabaugh will be discussing the importance of commercial lease provisions for the medical cannabis industry, and how these are different from typical commercial lease agreements.
She will specifically discuss certain lease provisions:
- The definition of “permitted use.”
- Hours of operation.
- Access for landlord.
- Definition of “hazardous substances.”
- Compliance with state and local rules.
The discussion will be relevant to tenants, landlords, operators, owners and investors.

The increase in size and scope of production has spawned, in many states, a real estate boom where many new “state of the art” production facilities are being built as well as older properties being rehabbed; as with most commercial properties, it is important for owners, operators and investors alike to protect their property and businesses against physical and economic loss via insurance.
