Given that technology shapes, enhances, and intersects with nearly every aspect of our lives, it is unsurprising that e-commerce is emerging as a key component of the cannabis industry. Dutchie, a leading e-commerce platform with a particular focus on financial technology, is at the vanguard of this phenomenon. Dutchie General Counsel Lauren Thomas joins Perkins Coie Partner and Cannabis Industry Group Chair Barak Cohen to discuss the unique challenges that technology companies face in the cannabis industry, her experiences moving from a well-established white-shoe law firm to an in-house legal role in a cutting-edge industry, and what it’s like to be a woman of color in a role traditionally dominated by white men.
