Marijuana Business Conference to Also Feature People Magazine’s Marijuana Millionaires, MSNBC’S Pot Barons, Medical Experts and More

The roster for this week’s Cannabis Business Conference, “Sports, Meds and Money,” just got bigger with the addition of former Denver Bronco Wide Receiver Nate Jackson to the panel.

Jackson will join fellow former Bronco and Super Bowl XXXIII Champion Marvin Washington, medical experts and famed cannabis chef Scott Durrah on March 4, 2015, to discuss the scores of NFL players who are suffering from symptoms caused by numerous concussions, many times resulting in Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in athletes (and others) with a history of repetitive brain trauma.

These types of brain injuries, and the NFL’s ban on the use of medicinal marijuana to alleviate or reverse them, will be a highlight of the Cannabis Business Executive Breakfast and Three-Day Conference – “Sports, Meds and Money,” March 4 – 6, 2015, at Casselman’s Bar and Venue in Denver (http://www.CannabisBusinessConference.org).

Jackson and Washington will come forward on Day One of the conference about the role cannabis can and should play in professional sports, particularly those fraught with frequent head and body injuries. 

Additional panel topics will include medical marijuana use for injuries and pain management, marijuana as a sports enhancer, culinary cannabis in professional sports, medical professionals will weigh in, and much more. The panel will be moderated by 850 KOA Radio Host and 7News Producer/Editor Justin Adams.
