Licensing, Compliance, Testing & Safety In Adult-Use & Medical States

Now in its 5th chapter, Infocast’s respected Canna EAST/WEST Series comes to New York City. As before, top state regulators compare notes both with each other, and with leading operators, testing labs, regional advocacy groups, standards-setting bodies and experts. Past Summits have featured dozens of senior regulators from many different states & major counties and cities. In addition to this audience, which cannot be found at any other expo or operator-centric event, this East Coast iteration will include a mini-exhibits area of regulatory and compliance consultants, analytics, testing, lab proficiency and certification providers, GMP consultants, and extraction, packaging and labelling solutions, which will complement the highly focused program.

Our mission statement can best be summarized: Doctors for Cannabis Regulation (DFCR) serves as a voice for physicians who believe that cannabis prohibition has failed and that the misuse of cannabis should be treated as a health issue rather than a criminal one. DFCR’s physician members strive neither to minimize nor to exaggerate scientific literature about the risks and benefits of cannabis use. DFCR promotes evidence-based strategies to prevent recreational marijuana use by minors and misuse by adults. Through education of physicians and the public, DFCR supports the legalization and effective regulation of cannabis in the United States and around the world.
