Course Description

Course Description

The U.S. cannabis industry is expected to reach $32 Billion in annual sales in 2022. Every year, analysts predict what the cannabis industry is worth. And every year that number exceeds expectations. Last year, annual cannabis sales reached $26.5 billion, and are expected to reach $32 billion in 2022.

Despite its significant size, the industry poses many challenges. Most businesses are subject to various licensing, permit, and registration requirements. These are put in place for public safety, tax, or other reasons. Because the cannabis industry is heavily regulated, licensing for cannabis businesses is particularly complicated.

It’s not a question of “if” you will get a cannabis client, but “when”.

The definition of social equity can vary, depending on the context, but generally boils down to justice and fairness in public policy. When it comes to the cannabis industry, social equity centers around the inclusion of communities of color in every aspect, from cultivation to consulting. While some cities are creating (far from perfect) social equity laws in hopes of creating a more just business landscape, a growing number of people are taking matters into their own hands.

Join this CPE course by Paula Collins to understand social equity cannabis provisions!

About Presenter

Paula Collins

Owner, Law Office of Paula Collins, PLLC

I take a personal interest in my clients and specialize in helping them find solutions to all of their business and individual needs. This means that my clients trust me on a wide range of legal and financial issues that affect their daily lives.

After an early career as a professional pianist, I began to do Tax Preparation for myself and my fellow musicians. This experience is one component of my ongoing practice of providing legal representation to individuals in contracts. I also saw the necessity of protecting assets through Wills, Trusts, and Estate Planning.

In addition to my tax and legal expertise, I have ten years of experience as a Special Education Teacher with NYC Teaching Fellows. Because of this, I have seen firsthand the importance of providing legal representation for those with special needs. The problems faced by these individuals are not abstract concepts to me.

I am a graduate of Brooklyn Law School with a Certificate in Intellectual Property, Media, and Information Law. While in law school, I won the Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE) competition for  an app design to help Indie Filmmakers in developing contracts. Additionally, I won Regional Law School Mediation competition. This award alone is indicative of my ability to find solutions.
