The first National Indigenous Cannabis Policy Summit is heading to Washington D.C. on November 15-16.
The event, spearheaded by the Indigenous Cannabis Industry Association, will focus on discussing opportunities for cannabis industry growth in Native American country. It will include panel discussions, keynote speakers and networking along with a reception and fundraiser benefitting the ICIA.
The ICIA launched earlier this year as a non-profit advocacy group for indigenous cannabis businesses.
“As stewards of environmental responsibility and with deep histories in agricultural expertise, Tribal governments and Indigenous people are uniquely positioned to add value to the cannabis industry,” said Rob Pero, president of ICIA. “ICIA will help tribal communities and Indigenous entrepreneurs navigate the cannabis industry, preserve Tribal sovereignty, further economic opportunities, and bring their unique perspectives into the national conversations around policy, sustainability, and equity.”
