By solving novel and complex regulatory, compliance and licensing issues, Aaron has helped to shape the legal cannabis industry in California and beyond. Aaron has been involved in securing over 100 licenses and authorizations for commercial cannabis activity. In 2016, he was appointed by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to serve on its cannabis advisory working group. Combining Aaron’s pioneering experience getting cannabis businesses permitted with his adroit navigation of a regulatory landscape in flux, has made him the go-to attorney for legal cannabis advice.

Amanda Ostrowitz, Esq.

Amanda Ostrowitz is a regulatory attorney and entrepreneur who’s identified a need for a user-friendly, scalable platform to research regulations and laws in the cannabis industry. Amanda founded RegsTechnology and its current product, CannaRegs, as a tool to aid attorneys, business people, and governments with localized tracking of regulatory issues. Although RegsTechnology has its origins in covering the dynamics of cannabis regulation, Amanda has created an innovative framework that can be applied more broadly to other emerging, hyper-localized regulatory issues.

Amanda is a New England native who moved to Colorado in 2004 to attend Colorado College where she earned a B.A. in Economics and went on to receive her Juris Doctor from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in 2013.
