  • 2019 North American Cannabis Summit

    January 28-30, 2019

    The 2019 North American Cannabis Summit is an objective forum to address public health, science, and health equity in this time of expanding cannabis decriminalization, medical use, and legalization of recreational use.

    The 2017 National Cannabis Summit, held in Denver, Colorado, was the first forum in the U.S. to convene a cross-state discussion of policy, regulatory, and governance issues related to cannabis legalization. We believe that continuing the conversation is important to establishing a public health and best practice approach to oversight and regulation of the emerging legal cannabis markets. We are excited to hold the 2019 Summit in California, a state at the forefront of cannabis decriminalization and legalization.

    The 2019 North American Cannabis Summit will broaden our discussions to encompass the experience of not only U.S. state and local governments but that of Canada and Mexico as well. We will expand our scope to include relevant topics in the realm of public health, science, and health equity. Grounded in balanced and objective science-based perspectives, the 2019 Summit will not include an exhibit hall and has no ties to the cannabis indistry.

    CCSA is awarding a limited number of subsidies to assist Canadian participants with expenses. For more information, access the Participant Subsidy Eligibility and Application Guidelines.
