Adam Bierman and Steven Cooksey, President and Chief Licensing Consultant for The MedMen, respectively, will speak on their experiences opening over 100 marijuana businesses nationwide.  Top lawyers and medical practitioners in the marijuana industry will also be on hand, as well as representatives from top local marijuana advocacy groups, Illinois government agencies, and marijuana software sales companies.  Each speaker is well-versed on Illinois' marijuana regulations and has experience dealing with similar issues in the states that have already legalized marijuana in some way, such as California and Nevada. The seminar will deal with how to obtain access into this fast-growing, billion-dollar industry, tips for navigating the competitive licensing process, and the steps of setting up and managing a successful medical marijuana business.

"The Green Rush has hit Illinois, and savvy people will step in and take advantage of this billion-dollar industry," says Bierman.  "The MedMen look forward to meeting and working with the Illinoisians who will be at the forefront of this movement, and educating them on how to get licensed, open a business, and make it thrive."  The MedMen have previously been featured on the cover of the Los Angeles Business Journal and appeared on Huffington Post Live, CNBC, FOX News, The Wall Street Journal, and many more, and recently completed a successful press tour in Nevada discussing the many clients he has and is currently working with in the state, which is now accepting applications for licenses.
