The program for the 2019 North American Cannabis Summit is organized by the overarching themes of public health, health disparities, and health equity in policy and practice and will focus on legislative, medical, science, and policy implications for the legislation of marijuana in jurisdictions across the continent. View the preliminary agenda.

Before and during the conference, join the conversation on social media with hashtag #NACannabisConvo.

The conference goals are to:

  1. Create a common understanding of the issues that policymakers, administrators, and other key stakeholders need to consider in response to the growth of the acceptance of cannabis.

  2. Describe lessons learned and best practices needed to address these issues at state, local, and organizational levels.

The 2019 Summit tracks have evolved:

  • Public safety
  • Prevention and education
  • Emerging research and epidemiological data
  • Governance, federal law, and emerging policy
  • Health effects
  • Regulatory issues

Please note that there will be no exhibition hall or vendor space.
