Welcome to Elevated 2016! We are so excited to have you join us.
The Elevated Conference was designed with the intention of educating and informing canna-businesses, large and small, about current and future legislation involving cannabis production, distribution and sales in California, as well as to provide a venue in which we can exchange information about best-practices and pool our collective strength to present a united front within the cannabis industry.
The growth of the medical cannabis industry in California is a testament to the dedication of passionate individuals to provide life-changing medicine to people in need. It is also a story of hard work and hard lessons learned.
Today we stand at a crossroads in California. Society’s eyes are being opened to the value of this miraculous medicine, while ages-old prejudices and misconceptions are being set aside. This, my friend, is a double-edged sword.
As society’s barriers come down and acceptance rises, government and big-business are taking note and beginning to take actions that will benefit themselves, but which could push out of the industry those of us who have been fighting for recognition of this plant for so many years.
The Elevated Conference is about bringing great minds together and creating a network of support for our vastly growing industry. We must stand together, get involved and learn from one another. We cannot afford to sit in the shadows of the black market while government & big business take away the industry our pioneers have worked so hard to establish.
Boldly, we must “come out of the woods and into the future.”
