With the legalization of recreational marijuana on the near horizon, the legal topic du jour in administrative law is everything and anything about medical cannabis or recreational marijuana. As such, there are a lot of upcoming conferences attempting to address legal and practical questions about the burgeoning industry. 

Whether you are an activist, a cannabis industry professional, or a new or veteran cannabis consumer (or all of the above!) attending cannabis centric events will help with education and awareness about the cannabis plant, do's-and-don'ts, networking with other like-minded activists or professionsals, as well as how one can legally participate in the industry itself. It is certainly an interesting time in history for marijuana…regardless of how people feel about it.
