KEYNOTE: Illicit Market Summit: Addressing the Illicit Cannabis Market Through Public-Private Collaboration

Cannabis in the Northeast


Room: Veterans Memorial Auditorium
Session: GEN2
Time:
Thursday, February 20
10:15AM - 11:00AM

Time Zone:
Pacific Standard Time

Members of local and federal law enforcement, attorney generals, cannabis commissioners, entrepreneurs, associations, federal health agencies and big tech companies, will all gather for a closed-door summit to share information about the illicit cannabis market. 

Currently, this flourishing illicit cannabis market continues to: 
– Harm public health by offering untested, unregulated, unsafe cannabis products to consumers.
– Divert precious law enforcement resources away from other law enforcement priorities.
– Harm the profitability of state-legal cannabis businesses.
– Divert anticipated tax revenue from cash strapped states and municipalities.

Although the actual summit will be closed to the public, leaders from the Illicit Market Summit will present a report recapping and highlighting a path forward that encompasses best practices for sharing information through a public-private partnership and alternatives to arrest and incarceration.
