Compliance is notably the most important aspect of working in the cannabis industry because every process of any job in cannabis is dictated by compliance regulations and state approved standard operating procedures. Failure to operate every industry related task according to state regulated compliance can result in very expensive fines, license suspension and even the loss of the cannabis license to operate and/or imprisonment. Experts Nova Cobble and Conor Gorman instruct this comprehensive training course in state-level compliance.
