Impending Implementation of California’s 2018 Business-critical Cannabis Regulations to be Addressed at Upcoming San Diego Cannabis Business Expo


Conference Promoter MJIC, Inc., Expects Sellout Attendance by Entrepreneurs and Cannabis Service Providers; Lineup of Marquee Speakers Will Discuss California Cannabis Compliance Concerns and More


LOS ANGELES, Calif., Feb. 21, 2017—MJIC, Inc., the leading provider of cannabis regulatory compliance solutions and services, media, investor capital and supply chain distribution, announced today that it expects to sell out for its upcoming third annual Cannabis Business Expo, March 5 - 8 in San Diego, California. MJIC attributes the flood of pre-event registrations to mounting concerns centered around California’s complicated licensing regulations that will impact every participant in the Cannabis supply chain, from growers to dispensaries, to ancillary non-flower touching suppliers like surveillance and technology providers seeking to do business in the 6th largest economy in the world – California.

“Heavy enrollment in each compliance-focused session together with other data metrics gathered by MJIC during the online registration process strongly indicate that compliance centric information is a major focus point for an overwhelming number of cannabis entrepreneurs,” said Larry Horwitz, General Counsel for MJIC, Inc. “We are laser-focused on helping educate the rapidly budding, fast-moving cannabis industry on a myriad of fluid and dynamic nuances as they unfold so the industry is ready for 2018.”

Of primary interest to attendees is the pre-state licensing strategy track for obtaining municipal operating permits, the implementation of California’s regulatory infrastructure roundtable by state and local officials and the key note speaker U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, notable R-Calif who introduced a bill that would protect states’ rights to legalize marijuana (Respect State Marijuana Laws Act) are trending as the hottest Expo draws this past week.

Horwitz added, “The data we are getting indicates that all stakeholders at every segment of Cannabis business are concerned about what the regulations mean and how to prepare in advance of January 1, 2018. The Expo compliance tracks give stakeholders real compliance solutions, strategies and access to subject matter experts providing a real opportunity for potential licensees and ancillary cannabis companies to gain valuable insight and education on critical compliance issues and solutions.”

Session attendees will leave with a solid soup-to-nuts understanding of licensing intricacies on what is necessary to compliantly kick-start a new operation or grow an existing business. The 3rd Annual California Business Expo will be held at the Sheraton Marina Hotel in San Diego March 5 – 7. Interested parties can learn more at or contact [email protected].
