It has added a new market to CRE which has blurred some lines and created a new source of income in an unconventional way. But how does an industry that is not federally approved make its way into the commercial real estate community? Join our panel of experts, as they tease out the unique legal and societal complications that surround marijuana and the broader cannabis industry. Presenters will discuss how real estate transactions are being structured between operators and owners, necessary zoning and policy changes, NIMBYism and other whole host of other topics.
