Featured Session: Driving Herbal Economic Equality (Cannabusiness)

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.

Communities around the world are hurting because of the policies put in place around the “war on drugs”, while large corporations are profiting in what is one of the largest global markets. Learn from cultural influencers, policy mavens, and cannabis executives how we, as a community, can build the next Uber, Airbnb, or Amazon with a people-centric cannabis culture.

Join media mogul and NYT best-selling author Charlamagne Tha God, hip-hop legend Raekwon, CEO of CitizenGrown Deepa Vora alongside moderator Vice Media's host of Weediquette Krishna Andavolu for a conversation around the opportunity to leverage cannabis as “the tool” for economic growth and equality.
