The Lift Cannabis Expo Comes to Toronto May 28 - 29, 2016

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - February 26, 2016) - The Lift Cannabis Expo is coming to Toronto May 28 - 29 and the timing couldn't be any better for Canadians looking to learn about and experience this massive new industry. In the past six months alone the federal government pledged to legalize cannabis for adult use, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs and the LCBO all expressed interest in getting involved in the industry, and just this week medical patients were deemed to have a constitutionally-protected right to grow their own cannabis. The possibilities (and questions) have never been greater.

Over the course of two full days, the Metro Toronto Convention Centre will host over one hundred exhibitors from across North America and Europe. From Licensed Producers, to cannabis startups and advocacy groups, the Lift Expo will be a nexus of Canada's unique medical program and forward-thinking cannabis culture.

Attendees will be able to interact with exhibitors from all corners of the industry while learning first-hand the benefits of medical cannabis in the Lift Demo Area where authorized patients will explore topics such as cooking with cannabis, extraction methods, and growing. We're also pleased to announce a sponsored vapour lounge on site for the enjoyment of our authorized attendees -- expect a relaxed lounge environment, plenty of surprises and great conversation.

Finally, Lift is excited to announce that all first responders, active members of the Armed Forces and veterans are eligible to receive complementary tickets to the Expo. In support of our Armed Forces, Lift has partnered with MFT Group to bring together veterans from across North America for a panel discussion full of personal stories, experiences and the future of medical marijuana as a treatment. Notable industry speakers on our main stage include Jazmin Hupp, Jonathan Page, Jamie Shaw, Dana Larsen, David Hyde, Jodie Emery and many more.

This is shaping up to be a historic year for cannabis in Canada - we hope you'll join us in May.

Tickets are now available online for $15 for both days. For further information and to buy tickets, please visit http://liftexpo.ca. A special thank you goes out to our Title Sponsors, Tweed and Crop King Seeds, for helping to make this event possible.
