October 17, 2018 is a big day for Canada: we’re the first nation in the G7, and just the second worldwide, to legalize recreational cannabis but, as ever, Business of Cannabis’s focus is already on what happens next.
Volume 1, Issue 2 of Papers: A Rolling Guide to the Business of Cannabis wanted to not just celebrate the end of the cannabis prohibition era, but to talk about some of the key issues for the industry as it matures and evolves. In this issue we worked with illustrators Jon S. Godfrey, Monica Hellstrom, Cai Seuplis, and Sara Wong to visually bring to life a wide range of complex topics. Subjects ranged from where the next big opportunities are for the sector, to what the cannabis industry will look like after the inevitable rounds of post-legalization consolidation.
To increase their presence, this issue also features a refinement of the look of recurring articles like Start-up Stories, which gets to know the entrepreneurs who are identifying new opportunities and building new businesses across the sector.
