People interested in exploring business opportunities in Maine’s emerging cannabis industry are encouraged to attend the third annual Maine Cannabis Convention set for Oct. 14 and 15 at the Portland Sports Complex.

As Maine becomes the eighth state to legalize recreational marijuana, the Maine Cannabis Convention will explore how laws will be shaped, what business opportunities are available and how Mainers can ensure that local economies benefit from this industry. The convention is expected to draw more than 2,000 attendees, 120 industry exhibitors and more than 100 local and national speakers, according to a release from the convention organizers.

The two-day event will feature a programming track for cannabis business, careers and medicine, and a track for DIY cannabis. Session topics include how to start a career in cannabis; complying with new laws; cooking with cannabis; running a bud & breakfast; medical cannabis uses and more. Attendees will also be able to register for a six-hour business course offered through Clover Leaf University.

“The goal of this convention is to get everyone in Maine who is in the cannabis industry, or would like to be, in one room for a weekend of networking, education and relationship building,” said Marc Shepard, co-founder and president of New England Cannabis Network, the organization sponsoring the event, in the release. “The faster Maine businesses get up and running, and the more local connections they make, the higher the percent of cannabis revenue will stay in the state.”

Registration for the event can be purchased online at New England Cannabis Conventions. A limited amount of tickets will also be sold on-site on the days of the shows. The full programming schedule is available at Maine Cannabis Convention | October 14-15, 2017 - necann.com.

Attendees must be 18 or older, unless accompanied by an adult. Identification is required.
