Cannabis News: Cannabis “Hits Shores of Guam and Northern Mariana Islands
A conference on legalizing cannabis and the possible effects on the tourism sector will be held next week by federal courts serving the U.S. territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
In recent years, both regions have taken steps to legalize cannabis for recreational consumption, and now their U.S. district courts are hosting a conference entitled “Marijuana Hits the Shores of Guam and the CNMI”. Investors in the industry, policymakers, and tourist authorities will all be in attendance. The session will be moderated by an Arizona-based federal bankruptcy judge.
Among the primary topics to be discussed is if the cannabis industry will “help or harm the tourism industry.” Speakers will also discuss the “risks and benefits” of legalizing cannabis, as well as the financial potential of the medical and recreational industries. Additional topics to be explored include finance and the legal aspects of the cannabis sector.
