Cannabis business owner Jim Belushi will keynote this year’s Cannabis Conference 2020, presented by GIE Media’s Cannabis Business Times, Cannabis Dispensary, and Hemp Grower. The three-day event will be held at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, April 21-23, 2020.
Belushi, known for his numerous film, television, and musical performances, including the popular sitcom “According to Jim,” will share his experiences as the owner and operator of the ninety-three acre Belushi’s Farm which he began developing in 2015 under the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP).
“Every time I cultivate the land, I get pulled more and more into the medicine and the joy of this work,” says Belushi. “My experience has truly changed me as a man, and I’m looking forward to sharing what I have learned from my amazing journey with this year’s Cannabis Conference attendees.”
“We are thrilled to have Jim Belushi keynote Cannabis Conference 2020,” says Noelle Skodzinski, editorial director for Cannabis Conference, and Cannabis Business Times, Cannabis Dispensary and Hemp Grower magazines. “His passion for the plant, and for the health and economic potential it holds for society is aligned with so many of our attendees and with our mission. Our audience of plant-touching-business owners and operators will surely benefit from his experiences growing cannabis in the Oregon market, his plans and hopes for the future, as well as his wisdom and humor.”
The Cannabis Conference 2020 is expected to draw over 3,000 attendees from 40 countries and bring together dozens of the industry’s leading voices to address the biggest opportunities and challenges facing the legal cannabis market.
