The International Cannabis Business Conference (ICBC), named the Marijuana Event of 2014 by us when it was held in Portland last year, is being held in San Francisco on February 15th-16th, and it is not to be missed if you can make it to the Bay Area. The ICBC brings together some of the best minds from marijuana politics and the business side of things to give cannabis industry entrepreneurs and activists the best information possible.
One of the major reasons that I am willing to support the ICBC is that I know that the folks working to put on this measure aren't only about making money; they want to end marijuana prohibition across the country and work to bring together activists and business people in an effective way to make that happen.
This ICBC in San Francisco features neuroscientist Dr. Carl Hart to educate attendees on the latest in cannabis science, travel guru Rick Steves to share how he has helped speak to the masses about legalization, Ethan Naedlemann to discuss reform efforts across the glob and to encourage the industry to support such reform efforts, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher to talk about federal law, Harborside's Steve DeAngelo to talk about his years as an activist and business man and many, many more exciting speakers and panelists.
If the program and speakers aren't enough, the conference includes a private event featuring Bay Area hip-hop legend Del the Funky Homosapien. Early bird tickets are currently $499 and will increase Friday the 17th to $599, so save yourself some hard-earned cash and get your tickets today.
