Notes from Stephanie Shehan, the editor of Vegas Cannabis Magazine:
The cannabis industry in Nevada is constantly evolving. Some are choosing to jump on board while others are essentially choosing to boycott the regulated industry. Regardless of your choice, ultimately it is the patients that we must consider. Patients that deserve safe access to legal medication. We are seeing an influx of new patients that should be educated on the variety of products offered by the dispensaries and the different routes of administration. Please remember that, while many of us in the local cannabis community are self-sufficient, seasoned activists, there are still many that are fairly new to medical cannabis and those patients deserve to be supplied with resources and guidance in order to make educated decisions about their medicine. The movement towards recreational cannabis in Nevada is drawing near and the inevitability of full legalization looms. Essentially, we must each realize that the industry is moving forward, with our without us.
On a lighter note, summer is finally here and on June 4th most of us will gather at the 3rd annual Las Vegas Hempfest which is being held at Craig Ranch Regional Park. The event is sponsored by Medizin™ and boasts a decent musical lineup and a good amount of vendors. For ticket info, visit www.LasVegasHempfest.com.
Last month, patients gathered for the 2nd annual Patient Choice Awards. Attendees had a blast checking out the various exhibitors, listening to music, enjoying the food and socializing.
Next month, we can look forward to Chalice in Southern California which features music, glass, hash and art and also the Champs trade show which runs locally at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
