The program will also provide insights from local attorney turned fledgling hemp farmer Dan R. Pilkington. You will gain a basis understanding of the legal implication of growing, marketing and selling hemp which you can pass on to clients interested in getting into the cannabis industry. You will also learn the future of cannabis in Tennessee, including the possible timeline for legalization of medical and recreational marijuana.
