Cannabis legalization has come a long way in the United States, currently enjoying record high support across the political spectrum with supermajority support among Democrats and independents and even garnering majority support among Republicans, something that was unfathomable not that long ago. A pioneer among Republicans was former United States Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, who was elected in Orange County in 1988 and served for three decades, the go-to Republican for sensible cannabis policy legislation in the U.S. Congress. The International Cannabis Business Conference is pleased to announce that Dana Rohrabacher will be keynoting the Zurich conference this May 15-16.
Rohrabacher’s lasting cannabis policy achievement was the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment that prevented the federal government from interfering with state-legal medical cannabis patients and providers. First introduced in 2004, the amendment was finally passed in 2014, helping set the tone for the U.S. government’s current hands-off approach regarding state cannabis laws, a policy that was started by the Obama administration and has continued so far through Donald Trump’s tenure, outlasting anti-cannabis Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Today, Rohrabacher is a respected spokesman for freedom and technology. As a sought after speaker, Dana sits on the Board of Directors for CBD Global Sciences, a leading company in the CBD Industry. His involvement in the CBD and Cannabis industries, not to mention his direct and impactful involvement with cannabis legislation in the United States, Dana comes to ICBC Zurich with a wealth of information and experiences to share about how our industry is changing and growing.
CBD Global Sciences is a true “seed to sale” Canadian company farming and processing CBD through its subsidiaries. Strasburg Pharms cultivates and processes CBD-rich hemp which is then converted into several products distributed through Aethics and other brands.
