Cannabiz PR with Michael Mejer of Green Lane Communication

Now take Cannapreneurs, for example, they have all the traditional challenges of business, plus, incredibly challenging communication laws that they need to navigate. Marketing and Advertising are virtually impossible for Cannabis-related brands due to the strict restrictions on these activities.

Join us to learn how public relations fits into your business and how to get started with Michael and Green Lane Communication, today.
