Melissa Etheridge, Grammy and Academy Award winning singer-songwriter, will be a keynote speaker during the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBExpo), September 16-18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles.
Etheridge's much anticipated keynote address will take place on Thursday, September 17, at 2 pm. The CWCBExpo in LA is an event for the legalized and medical marijuana industries.
“I was extremely honored to be asked to speak at the CWCBExpo because as a cancer survivor, who discovered the unparalleled medical benefits of cannabis during my recovery, I feel very passionate about helping to remove the negative stigma and educating people about its real medicinal value,” said Etheridge.
“We are thrilled to have Melissa Etheridge Keynote at CWCBExpo in LA,” said Christine Ianuzzi, managing partner of Leading Edge Expositions, LLC, and show director for CWCBExpo. "Not only is she an iconic rock star, but also a very successful entrepreneur and advocate within the legalized cannabis industry. Her historic keynote will be enormously well received and very captivating."
Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Melissa has remained one of America’s favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. She began her distinguished musical career in 1988 when she stormed onto the American rock scene with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album.
