The Canadian marijuana market is quickly becoming a global leader in the cannabis investment space.  The Canadian marijuana market size is forecast to reach $2.5 billion in 2020 should full legalization take into effect as many expect.   Will the Canadian market follow a similar growth trajectory and market penetration trend similar to Colorado and Oregon?

How should family offices consider investing in the space?  The Cannabis Private Investment Summit Toronto is a family office series that will explore the opportunities and risks of investing in the cannabis industry. This is the leading cannabis investing educational summit exclusively offered to high net worth investors and family offices.
