Medical Marijuana Awareness Day St. Petersburg
Medical Marijuana Awareness Days are a series of conferences held throughout Florida with a goal to educate the public on the benefits of of medical marijuana with an accessible and balanced platform.
This event was the one that really set our standards and typical lineup, consisting of three main presentations, a patient testimonial panel and doctor introduction, and a comprehensive Q&A session at the end of each session! Interspersed are short introductions to each dispensary, to give patients an idea of what they can expect at each.
