Join us at Cass Business School for the first Cannabis Conference of its kind, hosted by the Alternative Finance and Investment Society.
The landscape surrounding marijuana is changing globally. Uruguay and Canada are leading the way as the first two countries to legalise cannabis for recreational use. However, there are more than 30 countries that have legalised it for medical purposes, with Europe as a leader in medical cannabis progressivism. And there are lots of changes on the horizon.
In the UK specifically, there has been hype around cases such as Alfie Dingley and Billy Caldwell who both benefit greatly from using marijuana for medical purposes. These stories along with public debates and lobbying have resulted in the passing of a new law in the UK. As of November 2018, medical marijuana became available to patients in the UK on the NHS prescription.
There are a number of pioneers taking advantage of the growing opportunity and making substantial investments in it. During the Cannabis Conference, you will hear from and discuss some of the people paving the way and the reasons they are doing it.
