CannaDay, did you pass by our table?
Super CannaDay is a marijuana event, put together by the Florida Cannabis Coalition, which aims to provide education with keynote speakers, and an opportunity to network with people in the Cannabis industry. Over a thousand of marijuana enthusiasts attended the event including doctors, patients, dispensary owners, CBD companies, veterans, advocates, and more. The speakers at the conference discussed a variety of topics. Listeners had the opportunity to learn fact from fiction about the medical benefits of marijuana from real experts like doctors and scientists who have studied Cannabis. Attendees learned how to create a career for themselves in the Cannabis industry, and learned the ins and outs of starting their own marijuana business. Those who are new to the marijuana movement had the opportunity to ask questions to the leading experts in the medical and legal fields. There were also opportunities to see if you qualified to be a medical marijuana patient, and learn the process on how to obtain your medical marijuana card. It was an incredibly diverse crowd that attended this event over the weekend, and the turnout was better than expected to give Florida high hopes to see Cannabis legalization shortly.

Super CannaDay is also a motivator for people to get them excited about the industry and the future of Cannabis. Events like this are vital for the marijuana movement that relies on an extremely proactive public that continuously has to fight for Cannabis legalization, and getting the word out is key to making the marijuana movement a successful one!
