Duane Morris partner Michael D. Schwamm discusses the future of the cannabis industry at the CWCBExpo in New York City
With Illinois set to become the 11th state to legalize cannabis for recreational purposes, cannabis advocates finally have something to celebrate this year after a series of hard felt defeats for the cause across the country. PotNetwork News caught up with Duane Morris LLP partner and cannabis law attorney Michael D. Schwamm in New York City at the 2019 CWCB Expo to discuss what’s going on in Illinois, as well as the movement’s recent defeats in New York and New Jersey.
A practicing attorney in the areas of mergers and acquisitions, securities and technology law and general corporate counseling, Schwamm told PotNetwork News about the challenges that lay ahead for cannabis advocates in 2019 and beyond, and discussed what businesses need to do to prepare as the federal government looks at important issues such as banking.
