SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - September 07, 2016) - Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC PINK: MJNA), and its subsidiary HempMeds® today announced that the Company will be sponsoring a forum put on by the Association of Cannabis Professionals on Tuesday, September 7, featuring the two remaining candidates for City Attorney of San Diego City Mara Elliot and Robert Hickey. The event will be held in downtown San Diego at 6:30 p.m. at the Renaissance Hotel, 421 West B Street.
Medical Marijuana, Inc. invites the local cannabis community to network and develop their knowledge of the industry at the forum, put on by the Association of Cannabis Professionals, a professional association of medical marijuana providers in greater San Diego dedicated to providing high-quality medical cannabis to patients in a professional, respectful, discreet and safe environment.
The event will include a discussion with Democrat contender for City Attorney of San Diego Mara Elliot, currently a chief deputy in the City Attorney's Office, and Republican Robert Hickey, a deputy district attorney, who are facing off in a race expected to be critical to the future of medical marijuana regulation and enforcement in San Diego.
"We're honored to sponsor this important Association of Cannabis Professional's forum that will focus on a critical election happening right here in our backyard and thank Mara Elliot and Robert Hickey for coming to discuss their platforms," said Medical Marijuana, Inc. CEO Dr. Stuart Titus. "It's critical that we as business owners and industry leaders take the time to understand how the role of elected officials like a city attorney play in regulating the many facets of the cannabis market. We can all take a proactive position in controlling the future of our industry, from understanding how the role of a local official impacts policy to voting on critical state initiatives such as Proposition 64 this coming November, which has the potential to be a true watershed moment for legalization not only in California, but across the entire country."
The event will also include a review on how the latest state and local regulations can affect cannabis business and an update on how California's adult use campaign, Proposition 64, will legalize and regulate the recreational cannabis market in the state.
