2022 Preview: What to watch for in DC and Key Markets

2021 has been a year of consolidation and steady growth in the domestic legal cannabis industry while being largely uneventful at the federal level — but that could all change soon. What does 2022 have in store for the industry? What states should we be watching? Will the CAO Act, MORE Act or States Reform Act advance in Congress? Steven Hawkins, CEO of the US Cannabis Council and Executive Director of the Marijuana Policy Project, joins the Cannabusiness Key for a sneak preview of what to watch for in 2022. Join the event live at Noon ET on December 17th to ask Steven your questions or watch the recording later at your convenience.
