Out of the Woods

As the Golden State gets closer to legalization, it's increasingly important that cannabis growers, providers and other related businesses know how to stay legal and compliant with government regulations and laws.

That's the goal of the Elevated Cannabis Compliance Conference, taking place April 16–17 in Rohnert Park. As big corporations and governments start encroaching on the market, mom-and-pop canna-businesses are at risk of being pushed to the side after decades of working to establish the industry. Elevated is designed to help these small businesses remain current with upcoming laws and share information on best practices.

Guest speakers include state assemblymember Jim Wood (pictured), a Healdsburg native, who gives the opening keynote on April 16 and talks about the Medical Marijuana Regulations and Safety Act. Other politicians include former Sebastopol mayor Robert Jacob and Sonoma County supervisor Efren Carrillo. Business leaders like Lynnette Shaw, who opened California's first licensed dispensary in 1997, and lawyers like National Cannabis Bar Association president and executive director Shabnam Malek also offer their expertise.

The Elevated Cannabis Compliance Conference runs Saturday and Sunday, April 16–17, at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, 1 Doubletree Drive, Rohnert Park. $499.
