When in your lifetime have you witnessed the birth of an industry? As this industry transitions from illegality into a state-legal/federally illegal business, it faces business challenges like no other. Between difficulties in obtaining basic banking services, being taxed on gross margin rather than net income, and complex state and local regulatory environments, business owners and entrepreneurs face enormous hurdles.

In this episode, Partner and Cannabis Advisory Services Practice Co-Leader Mitzi Keating discusses the business challenges in the cannabis industry.

Key takeaways include:

  • Overview and business challenges faces
  • Taxation of the industry
  • Cash flow and fraud risks
