WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The National Cannabis Industry Association (“NCIA”), the largest and oldest national trade association advancing the interests of the cannabis industry, today announces San Francisco Mayor London Breed will deliver welcoming remarks at the 7th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo, taking place December 15 – 17, 2021 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
Mayor Breed’s appearance at NCIA’s 7th Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo takes place as the city marks the 30th anniversary of the 1991 “Proposition P” ballot initiative that legalized medical cannabis in San Francisco, and the 25th anniversary of California’s landmark Proposition 215, which extended medical legalization statewide.
Elected in 2018, Mayor Breed is a member of the Democratic party, known for her support for a more equitable and just San Francisco for all. In her term, she has aided in creating programs to provide shelter and care for the homeless, as well as affordable housing and workforce development programs, to ensure all San Franciscans have access to a thriving economy.
“We are honored to welcome Mayor London Breed to our marquee event of the year,” says Aaron Smith, NCIA co-founder and CEO. “The modern cannabis industry would not be where it is today without the unwavering support of San Francisco’s advocates and lawmakers over the past 25 years, and we look forward to sharing her invaluable insights with the wider NCIA community.”
NCIA’s Cannabis Business Summit & Expo is the industry’s most influential national B2B trade show, presenting an exclusive lineup of education, exhibitors, and experiences under one roof. Mayor Breed joins the event’s program of over 125 esteemed speakers, representing industry leaders, advocates, and activists, including Troy Datcher, Marvin Washington, Rachael Rapinoe, Calvin Johnson, Jr., and Anna Symonds.
