During the presidential election, voters approved marijuana initiatives in eight of the nine states where it was on the ballot. That means a total of 31 states and jurisdictions now have legal marijuana in some capacity. This is a situation that business valuators simply can’t ignore.
The New York State Society of CPAs has put together an event, the Marijuana Symposium: Business, Tax and Legal Implications, to be held in New York City on December 13. Among the speakers will be Ron Seigneur (Seigneur Gustafson LLP), who is a valuation practitioner based in Colorado, one of the first states to legalize adult recreational cannabis. He will cover valuation nuances based on lessons learned in his state. Seigneur is a contributor to a new guide, What It’s Worth: Value and Business Challenges in the Budding Cannabis Industry.
BVWire will cover this event, and we hope to see you there! Can’t make it to the Big Apple? Don’t worry—you can attend online. To register, click here.
