Introducing Jen Flanagan, Our Guest Host
We are excited to announce that Jen Flanagan will be joining us as a guest host for a four-part series.
Jen Flanagan is currently the director of regulatory policy for Vicente LLP (formerly Vicente Sederberg LLP). Jen has a ton of regulatory experience, and previously held a distinguished position as one of the inaugural commissioners on the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission. In 2017, Governor Charlie Baker appointed her to this role, where she was responsible for overseeing the administration of the laws governing the use of medical and adult-use cannabis in the Commonwealth. In her capacity as the public health appointee to the Commission, Commissioner Flanagan played a crucial role in developing, implementing, and enforcing the regulations that governed the emerging cannabis industry in Massachusetts.
Prior to her appointment to the Commission, Jen Flanagan served for over 13 years in the Massachusetts General Court, where she held various roles, including four terms as the State Senator for the Worcester and Middlesex District and two terms as the State Representative for the 4th Worcester District.
During her time as a host, Jen will be interviewing experts in the areas of hemp and CBD, compliance, licensing, regulations, and banking. Our guests include Casey Leaver, Brian Vicente, Sahar Ayinehsazian, and Shawn Hauser – all of whom are renowned in their respective fields.
