On November 8th, Florida voted to pass Amendment 2, a measure that would legalize medical marijuana across the state. In response, medical and marijuana industry professionals are working to set up the structure that will define the path forward with these new laws.
To that end, CannaCure Florida is offering a medical cannabis education conference at The Cuban Club in Ybor City to educate those who are interested on how best to provide this service to patients, how to access these services and why for potential patients, and how to follow state law along the way for all involved. Held from November 18th through November 20th, those who cannot attend in person can follow along or catch up with the conversation by following #CannaConferenceTampa on social media.

More medical marijuana conferences are planned across the state next year in Miami, West Palm Beach, Tallahassee, Sarasota, Jacksonville, Orlando, and Bushnell/The Villages.
