It’s only been a month since Arizonans voted to legalize medical marijuana in the Grand Canyon State, but positive economic effects are already being felt. The Green Relief Medical Marijuana Convention & Expo is coming to Glendale, Ariz., April 14 through 16, 2011.
“Since Arizona voters passed Prop 203 in November, businesses have been scrambling to take advantage of the opportunities medical marijuana offers,” said Rick Ells, co-founder of Big Truck Media Group, which is overseeing the show.
“Green Relief will bring patients, healthcare providers as well as business owners together to educate and inform in this rapidly expanding medical marijuana marketplace,” Ells said. “Three educational tracks will concurrently address patients and healthcare providers, legal and legislative issues and dispensary how-to’s.”
The event will be hosted at the Renaissance Hotel & Spa in Glendale.
The expo floor will include vendors, consultants, services, publications, cultivators, associations, equipment and accessories catering to the medical marijuana community, according to Big Truck Media Group.
Green Relief will offer a professional forum for uninitiated and under-informed potential patients and physicians who may be aware of medical marijuana as a potential treatment option, but otherwise lack the understanding needed to make an educated decision on its appropriateness for their condition, according to organizers.
Guest speakers will include leaders in the field of medical marijuana who will be addressing the challenges and opportunities that patients, healthcare providers, and businesses are encountering as they adapt to the new medical marijuana marketplace.
Topics will include the status of Arizona’s guidelines for use, distribution and regulation of medical marijuana, dispensary tips, medical card guidelines and the latest delivery systems.
“Our conference is designed to provide up-to-date educational information as well as a comprehensive exposition of vendors in the medical marijuana community,” Ells said.
