The event will address the many facets of the cannabis industry, starting with a welcome by state Sen. Pamela Helming and a panel discussion on social equity in the cannabis industry.
Two concurrent sessions follow at 10:15 and 11:15 a.m. Topics include the types of cannabis licenses, basics for getting into the business, regulatory testing and compliance, business-to-business opportunities, and educational programming.

FLCC offers a cannabis biology and cultivation track within its horticulture associate degree. With the growing market for the consumer, medicinal, and industrial uses for cannabis, the track provides historical, legal, practical, and health-related perspective on this culturally and chemically complex plant. Information on the program is available on the website at flcc.edu/cannabis.
