66. John Hickey – Hall Estill – Cannabis Law in Oklahoma

49 minutes

John Hickey is a shareholder at Hall Estill, an Oklahoma-based law firm. He handles a wide variety of litigation matters such as commercial and construction law, bankruptcy, employment, and real estate. He has experience in both federal and state courts, as well as complex and multi-state cases.

With over 30 years of experience, John is Hall Estill’s lead shareholder for the Cannabis Law Group. He graduated from the University of Indiana and went on to earn his law degree from the University of Tulsa.

In this episode, John talks about how Oklahoma’s lenient cannabis regulations have led to a large number of dispensaries and an exploding population of growers.

With so many new businesses being established, dispensaries need to account for the lower prices that come with increased supply. He believes that it will take time for the market to normalize and for long-term focused entrepreneurs to gain a solid foothold on the market.

Finally, John offers his predictions on what the future holds for federal law with regards to the legalization of cannabis.
