Advancements in the Age of Cannabis

Dublin | 14th September 2016

This global summit will bring together world class experts from science, public policy, business and campaigning to explore emerging new innovations in medical cannabis.

The summit, held on the 14th of September and set in Smock Alley Theatre in the heart of Dublin, will explore the future trajectory of public policy against the backdrop of new scientific insights, business developments and advancements in campaigning methods. Join us this autumn for a unique insight into this global tide of change. 

Medical cannabis is one of the fastest growing industries, with socially conscious and technologically savvy businesses carving out their own market niches. A range of regulation models are developing in vastly different political contexts around the world and campaigners are engaging with the public through innovative new methods. How we think and talk about cannabis is changing radically. We will be looking at how a sweeping tide of regulation has created a market in the US, one that is forecast to grow from $7.1 billion this year to $22.8 billion by 2020.
