Exploring the Legal Haze of Cannabis for Restaurants

Due to the popularity of this hot topic, we are bringing the show on the road!  

Jeanne Hamburg, Stephanie Spangler, Lana Ros, and Andrew Linden of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., will present a panel discussion entitled “Exploring the Legal Haze of Cannabis for Restaurants.” This will be a follow-up to the same panel presentation at the International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York, show, which takes place March 3-5, featuring over 40+ education sessions and over 500 of the leading vendors serving the restaurant & foodservice industry.

So, if you missed it, here is your second chance!

With the recent passage of the Farm Bill, which descheduled industrial hemp and CBD while reinforcing the regulatory authority of the FDA, and the increasingly widespread legalization of cannabis across the United States, a labyrinth of legal issues emerges for restauranteurs interested in offering cannabis products and services. While the industry is budding, the array of U.S. state and federal laws and regulations makes compliance a challenge.

Norris McLaughlin’s panel discussion explores the myriad of legal issues and risks of incorporating cannabis into your restaurant business, answering the following questions:

  • What are the legal risks and ramifications of providing food and beverages with cannabis?
  • What are the legal issues related to selling alcoholic beverages infused with or containing cannabis?
  • What is the state of federal, state, and local laws and regulations impacting restaurants that wish to serve cannabis foods and beverages?
  • What are the requirements and hurdles for obtaining federal trademark registration for cannabis-related goods and services?
