Convergence Keynote: Kevin Murphy and John Boehner

Please be aware that cannabis and related laws vary. Programming in this track is designed to inform attendees about this fast-changing industry, and does not promote the use or sale of illegal drugs.

Medical marijuana has been legalized in 33 states plus the District of Columbia, and 11 of those states have also initiated an adult-use program. It's not a matter of if, but when the rest of the United States will enjoy full access to cannabis. In this session, former Speaker of the House of US Representatives John Boehner and Chairman and CEO Kevin Murphy of Acreage Holdings, the largest US operator in cannabis, will discuss the likely paths to national legalization and the challenges and opportunities America's fastest growing industry face today.
