Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 21, 2015
(Denver, CO) – Sunday night was a big night for Denver Bronco Quarterback Peyton Manning. Included among the legions of stars during the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special, Manning was cool, calm – and truthful.
While meant to be funny, his joke that he “gets hit in the head a lot,” reminded viewers of the scores of NFL players who get knocked around quite a bit on the field, many times resulting in Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), a progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in athletes (and others) with a history of repetitive brain trauma.
These types of brain injuries, and the NFL’s ban on the use of medicinal marijuana to alleviate or reverse them, will be a highlight of the Cannabis Business Executive Breakfast and Three-Day Conference – “Sports, Meds and Money,” March 4 – 6, 2015, at Casselman’s Bar and Venue in Denver (http://www.CannabisBusinessConference.org).
In particular, former Denver Bronco and Super Bowl XXXIII Champion Marvin Washington will come forward on of the conference about the role cannabis can and should play in professional sports, particularly those fraught with frequent head and body injuries.
Additional topics will include medical marijuana use for injuries, marijuana as a sports enhancer, medical professionals will weigh in, and much more.
Other speakers will include Glendale Mayor Mike Dunafon, MSNBC’s Pot Barons of Colorado, People Magazine’s “Marijuana Millionaires” and various experts in the cannabis industry.
Hosted by Clover Leaf Consulting, the conference will also pair serious investors with Colorado’s rapidly growing number of cannabis business owners. More than 200 are expected to attend with at least a quarter million dollars in business deals expected over the course the event.
The conference will feature two days of expert presentations, an exhibit vendor hall, and the opportunity to earn approved cannabis business education certifications from Clover Leaf University (CLU) on the third day of the conference. CLU is the first and only cannabis university approved, regulated and licensed by the Colorado Department of Higher Education’s private occupational school board. There will also be a four-hour (2 – 6 p.m.) open house for attendees to network and discuss investment and partnership opportunities.
For those looking to make their mark in this industry, attendees will be learn about:
National Business and Brand Expansion
State-by-state Business Opportunities
Mergers and Acquisitions
Setting Best Practices and Corporate Standards, and more
