WHY THIS MATTERS

What You'll Learn:

  • As time and new policies normalize the Cannabis sector, what is changing with regard to leasing policies and activity? 
  • How are dispensaries impacting surrounding commercial property values?
  • As Chicago has emerged as a hotspot for the Cannabis industry, how has the CRE industry propelled this growth and how long will this trend continue? As other regions gear up for legalization, will Chicago continue to grow as a hub?
  • How do rules and regulations differ across states? Which states are next in line for legalization and where do the opportunities lie?
  • How do brands that lean into social equity have an opportunity to positively impact their ROI?
  • If and when cannabis becomes legal on the federal level, what can we expect to see in terms of financing options, innovation and trends, and new challenges?
