This event brought together professionals and community from all sectors of the industry to show their support for a local cannabis network. Most notably the women of Wisconsin are coming together for cannabis.
Wisconsin currently has medical cannabis legislation pending a public hearing, but some advocates are disheartened by the current cannabis political climate around cannabis.
