American Cannabis Report a Media Partner of CWCBE in NYC
The American Cannabis Report is a proud Media Partner of one of America's biggest cannabis conferences, The Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo (CWCBE) which is coming to New York City's Jacob Javitz Center May 30 - June 2. The list of industry superstars is impressive.
The CWCBE will feature Montel Williams (Emmy Award winner, Founder of Lenitiv Scientific) as Keynote Speaker, as well as Bruce Linton (CEO of Canopy Growth Corporation), Mike Gorenstein (CEO, Cronos Group), George Allen (President of Acreage Holdings) and Karson Humiston, Founder of cannabis hiring platform Vangst. as well as professional athletes Christian Okoye (Kansas City Chiefs legend), Mike James, (the first active professional football player to file for a therapeutic use exemption specifically for cannabis) and
Liz "Girl-rilla" Carmouche (UFC and MMA fighter).
CWCBE events typically host thousands of visitors at their major market locations in New York, Los Angeles (Sept 26-29) and Boston (Oct 17-20).
The timing of the New York show is fantastic, as the push for New York REC cannabis has become a major campaign issue. And in New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio has given the Police Department 30 days to come up with a plan to end “unnecessary arrests” for cannabis .
Neighboring New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has fast-tracked legalization ,
Pennsylvania that plans to lead the nation in medicinal cannabis research,
and even the mighty Delaware has decriminalized cannabis and begun a medicinal program, which was voter-approved in 2011.
And that's not even counting all the hemp activity, such as Southern Tier's recent move.
CWCBE is presented by Leading Edge Espos, whose founder Christine Ianuzzi is One of the Most Interesting Females in Cannabis.
