This cutting-edge seminar will provide a comprehensive look at investment opportunities in the emerging health care field of medical marijuana.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 13, 2011
Local and national medical marijuana business experts will be presenting a first-of-its-kind seminar to educate current and potential investors in Colorado about this growing and ever-changing investment opportunity. On May 23, 2011, in Denver, representatives from some of Colorado’s top medical marijuana businesses--including retail centers, ancillary businesses, and service providers--will present information to investors about the current state of affairs in Colorado.
Discussion topics include market analysis, a three-year case study, risk profiles and business valuation strategies, the legal and regulatory climate, and allowable investment structures in Colorado.
Despite strong interest from investors, unique barriers to investment have plagued Colorado’s medical marijuana business development. Unclear guidelines for investment, changing state and local regulations, and legal gray areas present investors with a complicated set of factors to consider; however, these hurdles need not dissuade the savvy investor.
A recent national report indicates that within five years, the national medical marijuana market could reach nearly $9 billion. Investment in medical marijuana businesses in Denver tops $200 million, and millions of dollars in sales taxes paid to local municipalities and the state have reopened libraries, turned streetlights back on, and helped fill budget deficits across Colorado. See Change Strategies, the report publishers, will present a discussion of The State of the Medical Marijuana Markets 2011.
“Of states with available investment opportunities, Colorado is unique in offering both a legally protected system for medical marijuana retail centers and a proven market with established for-profit businesses,” says Jill Lamoureux, managing member of CDS Centers and CDS Management Services.
According to Brian Vicente, principal at Vicente Consulting, "This cutting-edge seminar will provide a comprehensive look at investment opportunities in the emerging health care field of medical marijuana. Attendees will learn important aspects of this newly-regulated market and hear of opportunities to invest in companies that help Colorado's quickly growing patient population."
