Illinois Medical Cannabis

Investment and Legal Seminar

Please join legal experts and potential business owners for a legal and investment seminar on the Illinois medical cannabis law. The new policy, which allows for regulated cannabis stores and grows in Illinois, was signed into law by Governor Quinn on August 1. 

Speakers will discuss the Illinois law and business specifics including licensing, taxes, insurance, and, importantly, how successful medical cannabis dispensaries -- or "dispensing organizations" -- can best serve patients. The seminar is presented by Vicente Sederberg, LLC, whose staff has helped hundreds of medical cannabis businesses around the country form and stay compliant. Speakers will include experts in medical cannabis business, law, and operations, as well as tax and banking professionals. **This seminar will also include an in-depth discussion of business and investment opportunities in other states including Colorado, Nevada, Massachusetts, and more.


"With up to 60 dispensing organizations and 22 cultivation centers opening in Illinois, it is crucial that prospective business owners learn all facets of this new law, in order to make the transition as smooth as possible for this state's communities and patients," said Brian Vicente, a founding partner of Vicente Sederberg, LLC.
