  • Feb 15, 2019Exploring the Legal Haze of Cannabis for Restaurants

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

    • 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?
