Taxes for the Cannabis Industry with the Dope CPA Summer Thorn
The Dope CPA is a firm founded by Summer Thorn after spending years working for the military and studying criminal justice. She decided to use her passions and her skills in accounting and finance to serve the cannabis industry. Today on the show, we are joined by Summer and her colleague Malissa to uncover some unique challenges with the cannabis industry and discuss how important industry specialization is when searching for a financial professional. Malissa spent over 20 years in retail management, analysis and bookkeeping. She has spent the last four years on the dispensary side of the cannabis industry in both the Colorado and New Mexico markets. Based out of her hometown of Farmington, NM, Malissa spends her off time as an active member of several local non-profit organizations all while enjoying the perks of being a first time grandmother.
