A conference on medical marijuana will be held Nov. 24 in Rochester.
The goal, says organizing group Sensible Minnesota, is to provide patients, professionals and the public with updates on Minnesota’s new law, along with information on patient protections, nutrition and public safety.
The group says this is the state’s first conference on the topic, and also plans a discussion panel of patients and updates from Minnesota’s two medicinal marijuana manufacturers.
The day-long conference at the Mayo Civic Center is free, but organizers suggest a $50 donation.
Sensible Minnesota says its overall mission is to “educate the public on the uses, benefits, and relative safety of cannabis; to support persons harmed by prohibition; and to research, monitor, and publish cannabis data.”
Payton Curry of the group told the Rochester Post Bulletin:
“With a properly structured medicinal routine we have helped (patients) find relief in everyday life. We want to show Minnesota the possibilities and opportunities that come with proper knowledge.”
