Investing in Cannabis: Managing the Highs and Lows

Presented by

Jay Simpson, Senior Associate, ISS-ethix

About this talk

In an effort to address some of the key concerns for investors surrounding cannabis we will: · Examine recent legislative developments in a number of countries, most importantly Canada and the United States and the subsequent growth in demand. · Define key terms and important distinctions between medical and recreational cannabis. · Focus on the legalization of medical cannabis in a growing number of jurisdictions which has led pharmaceutical companies to invest in cannabis-based medicines, as well as alternatives based on synthetically produced cannabinoids. · Chart the growth of business opportunities across the full spectrum of the cannabis industry – both medical and recreational – including the tentative entry of big players into the market. Enhanced investor due diligence is required to address the legal, operational, financial and reputational risks the industry is facing – largely as a result of regulatory uncertainties and inconsistencies. We will examine some of the pitfalls of an industry in its infancy.
