Packaging & Policy – Helpful Compliance Guidelines and Expert Panel Discussion
June 19, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
Useful tips to support our industry in creating compliant packaging, followed by expert discussion and networking.
Update! See the video from the event here: FutureCannabisProject.org. Cheers!
July 1, 2018 is the deadline for 2018 compliant product packaging in California. Products that are not compliant will be removed from the marketplace.
The current packaging requirements under California state law can lead to some difficult choices about what to display on your product label and where it should be visible. Some of the requirements directly contribute to industrial waste.
We are both examining business solutions and empowering businesses to affect policy through a discussion on what steps are needed to take effective action.
This event series is focused on building our community, so that we can form a stronger network. This is a monthly idea exchange and networking event in Santa Monica.
