Cannabis in Commerce – Navigating Opportunities and Risks

A DCA Insights conversation with Steve Levine, Ken Condren, and Eric Meth, leaders in the cannabis and derivatives sector.

Cannabis and its derivatives are a $10 billion+ annual market in the U.S., and mainstream companies are increasingly looking to be involved in the market.  Even companies not selling cannabis products are likely to find themselves involved in the market simply by providing products or services to companies who do – e.g., ad-tech, payment processing, financial services, software and other common services.  While cannabis, THC and related products are entering the mainstream of commerce, their legal and reputational status is far from clear.  State-level “legalization” doesn’t resolve ongoing Federal issues, and companies dealing with cannabis – even at a distance – need to closely consider the implications for insurance policies, financing obligations, government contracting, PR risk, customer risk and more.

Join Dan Currell, the CEO of DCA, as he, Steve and Ken cover the essentials and then turn to an “ask me anything” format with questions submitted in real time and those submitted in advance.

Trade for Good

The Digital Commerce Alliance’s motto is Trade for Good. These three simple words sum up the mission of our non-profit trade association: DCA drives the future of trade and commerce, by making it a more socially positive, more friction-free experience for all parties, including consumers.

We believe that trade can be one of the most powerful forces for good. Our aim is to help merchants, card issuers, payment companies, fin-tech organizations, and consumers benefit in multiple ways from innovation enabled by digital commerce technology.

Members are empowered by DCA—and its 3 divisions, the CardLinx Forum, the Mobile Wallet Forum and the Financial Data Forum—to do all they can to make every aspect of trade good for both buyers and sellers, as well as their companies and the communities they serve.
