Roanoke Restaurant, 135 W. Madison Street, Chicago, IL

In this presentation, KEY Investment Partners LLC analyzes the growth of the U.S. cannabis market and explains why the private cannabis market is one of the most attractive investment opportunities of our generation.

The presentation will discuss the types of products offered in dispensaries, the differences between hemp and marijuana, and the most common uses for medicinal cannabis. In addition, KEY provides an in-depth look at the current status of the political environment today, as well as the many possible pathways toward federal legalization.

KEY will explain how the unique characteristics of cannabis companies and the U.S. cannabis market have created a window of opportunity for investors that will only exist for a short period in time. They conclude that investors in the ancillary companies, particularly those which have a certain set of characteristics, will be best positioned to take advantage of this window of opportunity.

The speakers will include: Peter Karabas, Tiberio I. Erdely III and Jordan Youkilis of KEY Investment Partners.
