Javits Convention Center In New York.

Rev. Al Sharpton to Keynote the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition   Apple News Press Release 0 Comments 133 views *(New York, NY) –  On Friday, June 16th, civil rights leader and founder of the National Action Network Rev. Al Sharpton will be the keynote speaker at Cannabis World Congress Business Exposition (CWCBExpo), the leading trade show and conference for the legalized cannabis, medical marijuana and industrial hemp industries at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. As a minister and the head of one of the country’s leading civil rights organizations, Rev. Sharpton has been concerned for some time about the disproportionate number of marijuana arrests of Black people in this country, including the unintended or intended consequences of national marijuana laws. Rev. Al Sharpton said, “Just because I don’t use marijuana as a Minister, does not mean I have the right to impose my moral values on others. However, I will challenge the cannabis industry and its distributors in states where it is legal to support civil rights movements and ensure that we are not disproportionately excluded from business opportunities.” As a guest of CWCBExpo, Rev. Al Sharpton will discuss the need for greater inclusion of underrepresented communities in the fast-growing cannabis industry, which is expected to exceed $20 billion in 2020.  This will be the first time Rev. Sharpton will speak publicly about decriminalization of marijuana use, civil rights, and diversity in the cannabis industry, as well as the need to lay the groundwork now for a national movement to provide education and assure Marijuana Stocks fair opportunity and involvement for people of color.
