    Why is there a need for a seminar? I predicted that there is a great potential for a great deal of money to be made in this new niche industry; which was one of my Master’s theses in Public Administration. I also detect the great potential for discrimination in who will be able to acquire businesses in this new busines area. What safe-guards or legal remedies have been put into place to mitigate and/or prevent this from occurring? Will wee see the same ones who are already financially solvent take control of this industry; thus monopolizing this industry as they have so many others, throughout the industrial history of the United States? Does attending this seminar guarantee that you will definitely be given everything needed to start the business. Can’t this information be found without paying $350.00? Why is it an overview(broad, brief summary)? Won’t there only be a very limited number of dispensaries allowed in Pa? Which in turn, would limited the possibility for equal access in resources to start a dispensaries or work in the industry, in some other capacity?
