2012 National Clinical Conference On Cannabis Therapeutics

Unfortunately, The Weed Blog will probably not make it to this event. However, I know of a lot of activists that are planning on attending, and I figured it would be good to post something so that others can possibly attend. It sounds like there will be more medical marijuana information at this event than most other events combined.

The Seventh National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics will be held April 26-28, 2012 at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in Tucson, Arizona!
