  • The State of Cannabis

    Renaissance Long Beach Hotel

    The CA Democratic Party will be hosting their CA Endorsing Convention in Long Beach November 15-17. I have moved my date for my annual conference, The State of Cannabis (SOC) to capitalize on this opportunity. SOC will be in The Renaissance Hotel directly across from the Long Beach Convention Center. From Long Beach's Mayor Robert Garcia: ​ “We will be welcoming the @CA_Dem State Party Convention and State Delegates to Long Beach this November. The Party will be holding its endorsement convention in our convention center and hotels. It’s our first CA Dem State Convention,” Garcia wrote on Twitter. “We expect thousands of delegates and numerous candidates running for President. I’m proud of our pitch to host and will be great for the local economy.” With so many politicians and media in town, we will be THE resource for all things cannabis. We intend to influence elected officials through panels, reverse TownHall meetings, roundtables, and invite only networking.
