ICBC San Francisco | February 1,2 2018

Thank you all for attending and making the 2017 ICBC in San Francisco such a wonderful event! We had Lieutenant Governor of California Gavin Newsom deliver a compelling speech at our VIP Reception, which also included appearances by cultural rock icon Henry Rollins, the 4-time NBA champ John Salley, as well as the world renowned Tommy Chong.

The conference itself kicked off with an amazingly impassioned speech by our keynote Henry Rollins, who doesn’t use cannabis himself but said “if I ever wanted to use it I would like it to be legal so I could obtain it”. Following Henry was our very informative California Rules and Regulations panel with California’s first cannabis czar, Lori Ajax. Other panels included Distribution Models and License Types, Public Market Financing and Cannabis Stocks, Consumer Tech and Branding, and finally our celebrity interview with John Salley, an extremely knowledgeable and gifted speaker on the subject of cannabis and being a vegan.

We look forward to returning to San Francisco in 2018 and hope you’ll come join us once again for the longest continually running cannabis business conference in California!

"The ICBC was an extraordinarily energized and positive event. Those in attendance will be changing perception and acceptance of cannabis. This is the beginning of something great."
