Institutional Capital & Cannabis (IC3)
New York, NY
October 21, 2019

Description

Great strides continue to be made across the US in the bid to legalize cannabis at both the medical and recreational level.  In 2019 alone, the states of New Mexico, North Dakota and Hawaii have decriminalized cannabis through state legislature and Illinois became the first state to legalize the commercial sale of recreational cannabis through state legislature.  Others like Oklahoma, Missouri and Utah have also made progress by approving ballot measures to legalize medical cannabis and are developing these programs now.

Another piece of landmark cannabis legislation is the bipartisan Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, that would provide protection to companies providing banking services to cannabis-related businesses. This bill is due to be voted on in the weeks leading up to IC3 East.
 
Against this backdrop, IMN is excited to host our 7th Institutional Capital & Cannabis Conference (IC3), as the leading investor forum for the legal cannabis industry.  IC3 is a meeting place for investors who wish to invest or learn more about this exciting and high-growth new asset class, cannabis companies and investment funds who are looking to raise money or showcase their products, and professional service providers who facilitate these groups doing business.

We’re excited to return to the East Coast and encourage investors, professional service providers, and cannabis companies to join us in the fall of 2019.
