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.
With the global expansion of legal cannabis markets worldwide, along with Europe and Canada, South America has become a hotspot for thought leadership around the expansion of responsible business development in the medicinal cannabis and hemp space. While the United States continues to struggle to find ways to base public policy on fact based trends and research, countries like Colombia and Ecuador are leading the way in constructing legal frameworks with robust testing and research programs that have international ramifications for the future of cannabis as a product that touches dozens of adjacent industries. This session was curated in collaboration with MJBizDaily.
