Whether you grow your own marijuana, process the plant or run a cannabis shop, it’s not like any other business. Conventional banking isn’t possible. Tax credits and deductions aren’t available. And investing in the new industry comes with significant risks.
The Oregonian/OregonLive will convene a panel of experts to discuss the complexities of operating a marijuana business in Oregon and what entrepreneurs and potential investors will want to know about financing these new enterprises.
The event will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24, at Revolution Hall, 1300 S.E. Stark, in Southeast Portland. Click here to RSVP.
Panelists include: U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer; Dave Kopilak, an attorney with Emerge Law Group; a representative from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission; and Noah Stokes, CEO of CannaGuard Security. Staff writer Noelle Crombie will moderate.
The forum is part of the “Big Idea” series, which brings together experts, community leaders and citizens to discuss important public policy issues affecting Oregonians. The yearlong series explores topics chosen by The Oregonian/OregonLive News & Editorial teams.
