What's it Like to Run a Cannabis Company in Missouri?

Originally aired: February 28th at 12pm CST

In the first year of legal retail cannabis sales, consumers in Missouri purchased more than $1 billion in adult-use cannabis, according to data from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. And in December, retailers reported a record $106.5 million in adult-use sales. 

These numbers stand to increase as the state prepares to prove more retail capacity this year. 

But like any new cannabis market, Missouri faces no shortage of hurdles that can potentially jeopardize cannabis operators in the state.  

In this on-demand Rootwurks webinar, you can hear Suzanne Morrison of STL Cannabis Services, Dave Owens of Proper Cannabis, and cannabis industry insider and connector Tammy P discuss the first year of legal cannabis sales in Missouri and what would-be entrepreneurs need to know before getting into the legal recreational cannabis business in the Show Me State.

About this Webinar

Legal cannabis is barely a year old in Missouri, but it has already made a big impact. 

With more than $1 billion in legal adult-use sales in the first year, the state’s legal market has exceeded many projections while avoiding some of the headaches associated with legal cannabis rollouts in other states.

But that doesn’t mean it’s nothing but smooth sailing for cannabis operators in Missouri. 

In this on-demand Rootwurks webinar, Suzanne Morrison of STL Cannabis Services, Dave Owens of Proper Cannabis, and cannabis industry insider and connector Tammy P discuss how Missouri has handled a wide range of legal cannabis issues from licensing to social equity to regulation, and what the state is doing to help avoid some of the pitfalls faced by other cannabis markets in the first years after legalization.
