Sanchez-Ramos is an authority in ethnopharmocology who has published work on other plant-based pharmaceuticals. He was an investigator for the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) sponsored compassionate use of Cannabis protocol. He is a leading component of treatment, not only for movement disorders, but also, to study changes in the endocannabinoid system, consistent with aging and disease.
Irvin Rosenfeld will share his insights as the longest surviving cannabis patient in the United States. For the past 32 years, the Federal Government has been supplying Rosenfeld with 10 medical grade marijuana cigarettes per day, as part of the government study of four individuals suffering from cancer and other life threatening diseases. He has been invited to speak at several state capitols, and has an interesting story of how he convinced the government to provide his marijuana.
Several experts in marijuana law and trade will represent the business community. Michael Bronstein is the lead consultant for the American Trade Association for Cannabis and Hemp. Bronstein has a unique perspective as a political “insider” and as an authority on electoral analysis. Attorneys and trade specialists will also provide solid information on how the business of cannabis can work.
Oaksterdam University will provide educational opportunities on the history, legal matters and the science of cannabis. Credits are available for AMA PRA Category 1, and CNE credits for nurses.
Best of all, is that the expo is open to the public. Those involved in the cannabis industry are also invited to network, build contacts and exhibit their products/businesses if they choose. Anyone from companies selling cannabis seeds to those involved in other areas of the marijuana industry should attend!
