Why Is This Conference Important?

Rachael Speegle, Verdes Director of Operations says it best: “Patients often lack access to critical information regarding new developments and applications of medical cannabis. Our goal is to give all New Mexicans the opportunity to gain information that will enhance their knowledge of medical cannabis and its best use practices. Ultimately, we want the New Mexico cannabis community to feel empowered with knowledge on what they should expect from their medicine.”
