Of all the states with cannabis reform, Colorado remains the leader of the pack as it’s early adaptation of legalization put the state on the map as a go-to destination to see how the emerging industry is shaping up. The advocates, patients, and consumers behind the major marijuana reforms have afforded the Colorado ganjapreneurs the benefit of being ahead of the legal cannabis curve and they are giving back to their community by volunteering to speak at the monthly Millennium Grown VIP cannabis networking event. The event is free for registered attendees and will take place on Wednesday, June 21 at the Metlo in Denver.
“The VIP event gives everyone an opportunity to get up-to-date information from industry experts while enjoying a consumption friendly environment and social setting meant to encourage progress and opportunity in the legal cannabis and hemp industries,” said founder Amy Dawn Bourlon-Hilterbran.
In its inaugural year, the VIP cannabis event is organized by Millennium Grown. The Denver-based event company produces private canna-centric events with the common theme of ending the stigmas associated with cannabis and its medicinal use through education. Millennium Grown is brainchild of medical marijuana advocate Amy Dawn Bourlon-Hilterbran and her husband and co-founder Jason Hilterbran.
Amy is adamant about creating a friendly environment for the VIP event with a few house rules:
No name tags No pitching No selling No interrupting speakers
The cannabis entrepreneurs chosen to speak for June have navigated the complicated and ever-changing rules surrounding the cannabis plant for years. They are experts in their respective fields and are joining forces with the VIP event to share their cannabis industry knowledge.
