Scientists, patients, doctors, advocates, lawyers, policymakers unite at April 5-7 conference to advance public health policy reforms
Medical marijuana advocacy group Americans for Safe Access (ASA) formally announced on Friday its second annual Unity Conference, "Navigating Medical Cannabis in the Mainstream," to be held in Washington, D.C. on April 5-7, 2014.
The conference will highlight medical and legal experts, policymakers, and a wide array of workshops and panels focusing on scientific research, strategic planning, and skills building. On Monday, April 7, ASA will host a press conference at 11 am, followed by a Hill briefing at Noon and a lobby day with hundreds of patient advocates.
"With medical marijuana moving more into the mainstream, patients and advocates are coming together to learn about the science and how to utilize increased attention on cannabis to bring about meaningful change," said ASA Executive Director Steph Sherer. "This conference is not just for patients and advocates, however, it's also for lawyers, doctors, policymakers, and key stakeholders in the effort to establish medical marijuana as one of the public health issues of our time."
