Legal technology platform CannaRegs is on a mission to make sense of the legal landscape of marijuana for stakeholders in this growing space. The company's founder and CEO Amanda Ostrowitz explains the regulatory landscape for marijuana, and why she was inspired to launch this start-up.
"I realized the only solution to my problem was to build it," says Ostrowitz. "It's actually kind of influencing the way law is being made because we've been able to track it to such a level where the first time a city government even talks about cannabis--we've tracked it."
Ostrowitz says more than a dozen county governments in California are using the CannaRegs platform. "California is still figuring everything out, and there's a lot of opportunity. With a lot of opportunity there's a lot of risk--a lot of reward," says Ostrowitz.
