Artemis Holdings Group LLC with Sheri Orlowitz
Artemis Holdings Group LLC with Founder and Board Chair of Council for Federal Cannabis Regulation Sheri Orlowitz today on Blunt Business only on Cannabis Radio. Our next guest is an experienced entrepreneur, venture capitalist, turn-around expert, board director, corporate leader, attorney, and former federal prosecutor. She represents an organization that will speak about, looks to “ensure that federal regulations are informed by and grounded in science, best business practices, sound public policy, and social justice principles.” As an emerging industry with sky-high revenue projections, lofty social-justice promises, and ground rules currently being written from scratch, no business in America prompts ready comparisons to Silicon Valley like legal cannabis. They speak about exponential growth fueled by the beginning of adult-use sales in East Coast states like New York and the potential of a legal national market, as the U.S. Senate for the first time seriously debates federal legalization while California and Oregon canna-businesses are being squeezed by high taxes, low margins, and oversupply as companies large and small rush to enter the fray.
We have spoken with a number of leading organizations that look to make their collective voice heard and I’ve made it a point to bring as many of these organizations on the program as possible. Congress is showing increasing signs of being supportive of cannabis than ever. Last year, for the first time, the Democratic-controlled House passed a sweeping cannabis-decriminalization bill. Now, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has paired up with fellow Democratic Senators Cory Booker (NJ) and Ron Wyden (OR) to persuade legalizing and regulating cannabis. So we have the push to pass the CAOA, the attempt to add the SAFE Banking Act into the NDAA, and most recently the outreach to the Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland to deschedule.
