Ed Rosenthal, a cannabis cultivation expert, will be participating in a panel on California growers and operators, as well as an open Q&A session, at the California Cannabis Business Expo in San Francisco this March.
Rosenthal served as a columnist for High Times during the 1980s and 90s. He was arrested in 2002 for cultivation of cannabis by federal authorities, who do not recognize the authority of states to regulate the use of medical marijuana. He was convicted in federal court, but the conviction was overturned on appeal. Rosenthal was subsequently convicted again, but was not re-sentenced, since his original sentence had been completed.
Rosenthal has been active in promoting and developing policies of civil regulation for medicinal marijuana. With the passage of California’s pioneering Proposition 215 in 1996, which authorizes medicinal use of marijuana, he worked with state and local governments to implement the delivery of pharmaceutical-grade cannabis to patients with a doctor’s recommendation to use marijuana. Rosenthal is also the author of several books on cultivating marijuana.
“We’re extremely grateful to have Ed Rosenthal participate and answer questions at the California Cannabis Business Expo. There are very few people who have as much skin in the game as Ed Rosenthal when it comes to experience growing in and influencing this frontier industry,” said Michelle Salser, Director of Operations at MJIC Media.
The California Cannabis Business Expo follows MJIC Media’s inaugural event, the Marijuana Investor Summit in Denver in April 2014, which drew more than 1,000 people and 100 exhibitors. The California Cannabis Business Expo in San Francisco is a unique opportunity to learn about the state of cannabis in California directly from those shaping the legal landscape.
