DETROIT, April 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — U.S. representative Nancy Mace (R-SC), will be participating in the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference, which will take place on April 20 and April 21, 2022, at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel, in Miami, Florida.
Mace, who introduced to Congress the biggest cannabis legalization bill, the States Reform Act, will be speaking about the state of the industry and legalization in the U.S. As Mace explained, the bill “seeks to remove cannabis from Schedule I in a manner consistent with the rights of states to determine what level of cannabis reform each state already has, or not.”
“This bill supports veterans, law enforcement, farmers, businesses, those with serious illnesses, and it is good for criminal justice reform… The States Reform Act takes special care to keep Americans and their children safe while ending federal interference with state cannabis laws,” Mace added.

“We’ve been looking forward to speaking at the Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference and sharing valuable insights into the lawmaking process with the top business leaders in cannabis,” said Mace.
“It’s a real honor to count on the presence of a speaker of the level of Rep. Mace at our Miami event,” said Chief Zinger Jason Raznick. “The Benzinga Cannabis Capital Conference in Miami will bring together the top movers and shakers in the cannabis industry, fostering dialogue between businesses and lawmakers.”
