In his speech at the Cannabis Congress earlier this month, Mr. Kovacevich—who is a Kush Bottles co-founder—discussed various facets of forming and growing a new business, including the conventional and more complex cannabis regulatory hurdles along with raising capital. There, he shared the speakers' platform with other industry luminaries including former NFL Super Bowl Champion, Leonard Marshall, and the founder of industry's NORML group, Keith Stroup.
"Maintaining compliance with your state's conventional business laws and regulations is difficult enough," Mr. Kovacevich said, "But if you want to build a national cannabis related brand? Now you are dealing with a patchwork of rapidly-changing regulations from 26 different programs. On top of that, you must be vigilant on the federal laws, county and municipal regulations and their equally-important and often differing enforcement policies," concluded Mr. Kovacevich.
Mr. Kovacevich related some of the Kush Bottles executive team's experience and leadership in cannabis compliance, as they have often worked as advisors to state regulatory agencies, including the Colorado MED and the Oregon State Liquor Control Commission. The team regularly educates customers on the complex regulations and rules, and has developed patent-pending products designed to meet these specific regulations.
