A BLACK HISTORY MONTH VIRTUAL TOWN HALL ON SOCIAL EQUITY IN THE CANNABIS SPACE, FEBRUARY 24, 2023 | 2:00PM-4:00PM (EST)
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.
The 420 Expo was held Saturday at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison.
Organizers of the weekend event said it was more than just a celebration of marijuana, but a chance to break its stigmas.
A man who was recently behind bars for marijuana said events like this will help normalize the industry.
In the wake of the market expanding its current supply with the award of new licenses also comes new employment opportunities for the Garden State’s burgeoning cannabis industry at the Cannabis Career Fair and Business Expo Nov. 17, co-hosted by NJ Cannabis Insider, the New Jersey CannaBusiness Association and Stockton University.
The second annual Cannabis Convention will be held this weekend (Oct. 2 & 3) at the Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City. Event organizers say it is the state’s largest gathering of industry professionals and those looking to use the adult recreation market.
As quoted in the Courier Post, “NJCANN is designed for industry leaders, advocates, entrepreneurs, career and knowledge seekers, and the canna-curious to come together to learn and meet the people paving the way for New Jersey,” New England Cannabis Convention Founder and President Marc Shepard said.
NECANN is the company that has been helping to develop what they call expos or “resource hubs” for the cannabis industry since 2014. They dedicate themselves to supporting entrepreneurs, expanding market opportunities, and helping patients, investors and advocates.
They’ve brought all of these resources to one place with their NECANN convention and it is one of the most comprehensive business and industry conventions you have ever seen in your life.
An estimated $4.6 billion in annual cannabis sales happen in New York alone, the majority of which is driven by that very same market, and the integration of that market into a legalized one is an absolute must, says Dasheeda Dawson, the Cannabis Health Equity Movement (CHEM) chief strategy officer and co-founder of the Cannabis Education Advocacy Symposium & Expo (CEASE). Dawson also runs the Weedhead & Company, a lifestyle cannabis brand that’s structured around education and e-commerce.
Green as far as the eye can see. From architects to agricultural veterans, the New England Cannabis Convention (NECANN) was a one-stop shop for consumers, growers and entrepreneurs alike at the Atlantic City Convention Center in New Jersey this weekend.
If you didn’t know what was happening inside the Atlantic City Convention Center this weekend, you might guess right by the smell of it.
It would be easy to make jokes about Atlantic City hosting the first state cannabis convention if the attendees weren’t so serious about what they do.
“People need to get away from this notion that this is a bunch of potheads sitting around, trying to smoke weed,” said Mali Sanati of Next Big Crop, A General Cannabis Company of Denver. “Everyone is just trying to run their business.”
