Opportunities and Challenges of Cannabis Equity Programs

Engage in bi-coastal, in-depth discussion at special session with Shaleen Title and Cat Packer

Summit participants will have an unparalleled opportunity to talk with experts on cannabis equity from both coasts.

Shaleen Title, commissioner with the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission, and Cat Packer, executive director of the City of Los Angeles’ Department of Cannabis Regulation, will facilitate a lunch & learn session on implementing equity programs at the state and city level.

Drawing on these experts’ perspectives and experience, 2019 Summit participants will leave with concrete ideas from both coasts about how they can work to advance equity programs within their own spheres of influence.

Shaleen Title was jointly appointed last year by the Massachusetts governor, treasurer, and attorney general to serve in the social justice seat of the Cannabis Control Commission, the independent state agency charged with regulating the legal cannabis industry.

Cat Packer is the first executive director of the City of Los Angeles’ Department of Cannabis Regulation. In this role, she leads the licensing and regulation of commercial cannabis activity, in addition to implementing related policies and programs.
