PITTSBURGH (February 23, 2017) — Pennsylvania State Senators Daylin Leach and Senator Mike Folmer will lead a Pennsylvania cannabis policy update at the inaugural 2017 World Medical Cannabis Conference & Expo (WMCCExpo), April 21 – 22, 2017, at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, 1000 Fort Duquesne Boulevard, in Pittsburgh.

As active supporters of Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program, Sens. Leach and Folmer will headline a state-focused policy discussion on Friday, April 21, at 3 p.m.

Hosted by Compassionate Certification Centers™ (CCC) and Greenhouse Ventures LLC, the educational expo is the first large-scale, physician-led medical cannabis conference that aims to establish a more inclusive and progressive healthcare dialogue.

The event will feature innovative workshops, networking opportunities, and seminars with industry leaders, entrepreneurs, healthcare professionals, and policymakers.

For tickets or information, call 1-888-316-9085 or visit www.cccregister.com.

A historic event, the 2017 World Medical Cannabis Conference & Expo will take place one month after the application window is set to close for applicants pursuing a dispensary or cultivation license in Pennsylvania’s competitive market.

Leach and Folmer collaborated in a bipartisan effort to legalize the use of medical cannabis in Pennsylvania. In April 2016, Senate Bill 3, the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Act, was signed by Governor Wolf, allowing patients and families with serious medical conditions to access medical marijuana with a physician’s certification.

“The medical marijuana industry has grown quickly across the country, but it still has huge potential. The 2017 World Medical Cannabis Conference & Expo is a great chance for patients, physicians, researchers, and investors to assess our progress thus far and chart a course for the future,” stated Leach.

An advocate for numerous causes, Leach (D-17) has dedicated his career to supporting environmental, educational, animal rights, and human rights campaigns.

Alongside Leach, Folmer (R-48) partnered to sponsor Senate Bill 3. He currently serves as Chairman of the Senate State Government Committee and Vice Chairman of the Education Committee.

“As the prime sponsor of what is now Act 16 of 2016, I based my journey to help patients on educating those who were doubtful of the life-saving benefits this plant from God can offer.  I’m optimistic the 2017 World Cannabis Conference & Expo will build upon this firm foundation of education and understanding, and thrilled this educational event will be held in Pennsylvania as the Department of Health implements our new Medical Marijuana Program,” stated Folmer.

Pennsylvania is currently in the process of implementing the Act and writing its regulations. Leach and Folmer will provide a comprehensive update on the state program during the 2017 WMCCExpo.

“We believe Pennsylvania will become a model for future patient-oriented medical marijuana initiatives. As a company, we are honored to have Senators Leach and Folmer represent the state at our inaugural conference,” said CCC co-founder Melonie Kotchey.

Nearly 5,000 general attendees and 170 vendors and sponsors are expected to attend, including industry thought leaders and patients from throughout the country.
