Virtual Conference

Texas Marijuana Policy Conference - November 20-21, 2020




Description

Texans for Responsible Marijuana Policy hosts the third annual Texas Marijuana Policy Conference!

Hemp has been legalized at the state and federal levels, but Texas still denies patient access to medical cannabis and tens of thousands are being arrested annually for marijuana possession. 

 

We have a lot of work to do!

 

Our first-of-its-kind virtual conference will offer presentations from political, legal, and industry leaders to help attendees better understand and navigate the legal climate for cannabis. We will also be focused on opportunities and our path forward to ensure more meaningful policy changes when the legislature meets in 2021. 

 

In addition to policy and advocacy discussions surrounding decriminalization, medical cannabis, and hemp, we'll feature a track of cannabis business sessions geared toward entrepreneurs, market watchdogs, and investors.
