Weed dispensaries remain illegal in Parsippany. But the township will become the site of a three-day conference about the cannabis industry.
The Cannabis Quality Conference & Expo will run from Oct. 17-19 at Hilton Parsippany. Organizers promised hands-on education, networking and business discussions about the evolving weed industry. See prices for registration here.
This year's event will debut two new features, according to conference host Cannabis Industry Journal. "Investigations & Enforcement: A Former Federal Prosecutor’s Perspective" will feature panel interviews on federal investigations, Justice Department prosecutions and white-collar offenses. "Compliance is Key: Best Practices for Your New Jersey Cannabis Business" will include discussions on compliance culture, quality controls and New Jersey regulations.
The keynote speaker is Tori Hutchinson, CEO of the Marijuana Policy Project — an organization that seeks to legalize cannabis nationwide.
