“Accelerate Cannabis, New Jersey’s Expanding Market,” a symposium being held next week in Newark, is an educational and networking event for anyone interested in cannabis to learn more about the New Jersey market.

Organized by Longview Strategic, the event’s presentation topics include a variety of subjects with a focus on New Jersey, from Real Estate Insights to Economic and Investment Perspectives to Products and Innovations. Importantly, the event will be bringing together some of the industry’s top minds on social advocacy, diversity and inclusion, and community engagement to help clarify the state’s priorities toward these topics and how best to approach community involvement and social equity.

“The panelists are pioneers with experience in the field and they know nuances in this emergent industry here in New Jersey,” said Ellie Siegel, CEO and Founder of Longview Strategic.

“While the education and policy components are top-notch, Accelerate Cannabis will offer terrific networking opportunities for anyone interested in the business of cannabis.” Siegel said that consultants, local government experts, and cannabis brand leaders will discuss how New Jersey is prepared for adult-use legislation and the expansion of the medical program.

Siegel — an attorney, advisor, and business consultant — founded Longview Strategic to help entities pursuing permits and developing operations in regulated cannabis markets throughout the country. She holds her JD and MBA from Rutgers University and has consulted for companies engaging with cannabis businesses from the healthcare, pharmaceutical, technology and fitness industries.

Due to its size, density, and location, New Jersey presents a major opportunity for cannabis entrepreneurs, both local and national, to get in on the ground floor of what could easily become one of the largest adult-use markets in the country.

Accelerate Cannabis will take place Tuesday, February 19, from 5-9 p.m. at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit their website here.
