For Immediate Release
WASHINGTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Medical cannabis education leader United Patients Group, in cooperation with the Congressional Cannabis Caucus, will spearhead a comprehensive bipartisan seminar on the science of cannabis on Capitol Hill on Monday, May 15th.
Corinne and John Malanca, co-founders of California-based UPG, will lead the bipartisan conversation about safe and effective medical cannabis in Science of Safe Cannabis: A Regulatory Primer. UPG will brief congressional staff, policy makers, industry experts, and patients on the science of cannabinoids, cannabis supply chain safety, the latest testing technology and techniques, as well as patient treatment and outcomes to ensure safe and effective usage of medical cannabis.
Science of Safe Cannabis: A Regulatory Primer will also feature a keynote speech by U.S. Rep. Tom Garrett (R-VA), as well as presentations from leading companies such as Steep Hill Labs, Shimadzu, Pathogen DX and the Cannabis Distribution Association.
America is experiencing a tidal shift in public perception and opinion around medical cannabis – with a recent CBS poll finding 88 percent of Americans in favor of legal medical cannabis and 29 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico recently voting to legalize medical use.
In the shadow of a partisan divide, Monday’s comprehensive and bipartisan Science of Safe Cannabis: A Regulatory Primer from United Patients Group might be the seed not just for national regulatory reform, but to help find common ground on Capitol Hill.
