It's not often that an entirely new legal industry springs up practically overnight after having been mostly illegal for decades. Unlike most emerging industries, cannabis already has a long-established consumer base for both recreational and medical uses, raising the question of how fast and how big the industry will grow, and what ethics will emerge from the start. There are also significant sustainability risks in the cannabis industry that potentially threaten its success. Investors should consider these risks as they evaluate their investments. This panel will review some of these risks, and discuss how investors can leverage their financial power to push to cannabis industry towards a more sustainable future.
