Final thoughts

As the end is coming to the horrendous year 2020, will the COVID-19 pandemic change how cannabis business will be conducted going forward? Are crowds a thing of the past, and the virtual cannabis event the norm from this point forward? 2021 will be the year we will find the real answer to that question.
