Cannabis and COVID-19: What Businesses Need to Know




April 23, 2020 2:00PM–2:30PM

The COVID-19 pandemic is having significant effects on the cannabis industry across the United States. While most cannabis businesses have been deemed essential, operators in certain states have been forced to close and others are seeing decreased sales. Cannabis businesses are relying more on delivery and curbside pickup and regulators have required businesses to enforce social distancing among consumers and employees. Certain transactions have terminated, and others are being renegotiated and the prospects for investment and debt financing have changed.

In this webinar, Foley Hoag's skilled team of cannabis attorneys will discuss how COVID-19 is changing the landscape for cannabis businesses with a focus on the actions of state regulators; the changing environment for investment and financing; and how cannabis business can survive in these challenging times.
