NEW JERSEY: A majority of US states are poised to transition from cannabis prohibition to some form of regulated legal markets for recreational and medical cannabis this year, making the 3rd Annual Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo) in New York a must attend event to learn about and see the latest innovations that will move the industry forward.

Taking place June 15-17, 2016, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York, NY, CWCBExpo’s ideal Northeast location taps into the country’s’ biggest financial, media, manufacturing, entrepreneurial and healthcare markets. CWCBExpo NY will offer an unparalleled learning agenda with subject matter experts in banking, pain management, healthcare, investing, regulations, law, emerging markets, and product development fields participating.

CWCBExpo NY attendees will gain the knowledge and tools needed to succeed in this hyper growth and dynamic industry including in-depth Add-On Workshops on June 15th that cover:

  • “Open or Purchase a Cannabis Industry,” a six hour certification program offered by Clover Leaf University
  • “Cannabis Growth Capital Conference and Investor Fair,” connecting investors with leaders in the cannabis public markets as well as up and coming private companies.

A bonus Add-On Workshop will take place the day after CWCBExpo NY, Saturday, June 18, with an all-day session on “Grow a Bright Future with a Green Collar Career: Don’t Miss the ‘Green Rush’,” presented by the Cannabis Career Institute.
