When Can We All Get High Together? (Legally)

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.

Certain states legalized buying and possessing cannabis, but unfortunately, not places to use it. Some say we just forgot. Others say it was intentional. Legalizing social cannabis use is now the next frontier in cannabis activisms and new business opportunities.
In most states with legal adult-use cannabis, consumption can only be done in one’s home or other private establishments. Landlords have been evicting responsible adults. Other adults must choose between risking a citation or using cannabis around their children or extended families. It’s time to treat cannabis and alcohol consumers the same. Learn about the movement to establish places where you can get high and laugh together, places that serve cannabis with live music or comedy, places where everybody knows your name.
