Hitting the High Points with Dawn Friedman

Published on Written by

Hi Civilized Readers.

I’m Dawn, a Senior Business and Legal Affairs Executive and proud member of the Executive Committee of the newly formed Cannabis Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association.

I’m looking forward to sharing my cannabis business insights with the Civilized community during the coming months. I’ll be hitting the high points” and focusing on the current hot button issues businesses encounter as they navigate the twists and turns of the continually evolving cannabis space. I’ll also be interviewing individuals who’ve been dealing with those issues to get their perspective from the front lines. We’ll be sharing the do’s and don’ts as we all navigate this new space together.

Have specific questions you’d like me to cover? Feel free to reach out to us and be sure to check this space frequently for new content. I’m excited to be a part of the Civilized community!
