Melissa Etheridge has been selected as the Keynote speaker during the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition.
The 3-day marijuana-centric expo will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, CA., September 16-18.
According to organizers, the expo is the leading event for the legalized and medical marijuana industries.
“I was extremely honored to be asked to speak at the CWCBExpo because as a Cancer survivor, who discovered the unparalleled medical benefits of cannabis during my recovery, I feel very passionate about helping to remove the negative stigma and educating people about its real medicinal value,” said Etheridge in a statement.
Speaking with Bloomberg News last year, Etheridge explained her reasons for getting into the pot business saying, “I believe this is a huge business, a huge market-you’re going to see my name with a lot of these things. I actually have a wine coming out-a cannibis-infused wine which actually tastes amazing.”
One the legal dust settles, Etherigde says, I really look forward to bringing this to the world in a ‘not scary way-an outlaw way.”
