Medical Cannabis: From Rogue to Recovery to Riches

How has medical marijuana gone mainstream from being an underground economy and an outlaw approach to healing, and what factors have transformed these commodities into the next wave of transformational medicine? Learn the path that was taken, the obstacles encountered and the legal, moral, and business imperatives which continue to break open new pathways of healing. What are the business and social opportunities opened up by this next wave of cannabis-related healing modalities, and how can we best balance the amazing therapeutic possibilities with hard-core business savvy and market economics? A panel of government, medical and family activists will uncover the unexpected alliances formed — and strategies for collaboration for commercial success in a complex marketplace.
