Getting Connected Before the Conference
The conference room started to fill up an hour before the doors were officially going to be opened, and attendees got to mingle with speakers and industry representatives before the event began. Behind the seating area, sponsoring dispensaries set up displays. On the other side of the room, educational resources and qualified clinics had displays on either side of the speakers’ stage

The organizers behind Medical Marijuana Awareness Days are very proud to be able to bring doctors and dispensaries out to the patients to answer questions in person and explain pieces of the state MM process. This wide scale kind of face-to-face interaction serves as a great reminder that everything we do should be focused on the patients as individuals.
