Medical Marijuana Awareness Day at the Villages
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 was our second MMAD conference day in the Villages, and we had our biggest turnout yet! The team is very grateful to everyone who helped spread the word after our June visit, and thanks to the feedback from prior attendees on how to improve our program! For this event we changed up the session times to better suit our audience, with sessions from 9am to noon and from 2pm to 5pm.

Returning to the Villages
Thanks to the feedback from prior attendees after our June visit to the Villages, we have since streamlines our conferences to provide a solid base understanding of medical cannabis, and a good jumping off point into further reliable research!

Lobby at the Waterfront Inn
We returned to the beautiful Waterfront Inn for this event, a valued partner in our efforts to bring medical cannabis education to the community.
At this point in his pivotal “Applications of Medical Marijuana” presentation, Vance shows a chart depicting safe-dose to toxic-dose ratios in common drugs, including Advil, Adderall, and alcohol. Attendees had plenty of questions about chemical overdose in painkillers and specific medications, and Dr. Dorn joined our speaker for a few minutes to provide additional insight into America’s opioid crisis.
Thank You to Attendees!
With some extra chairs and some creative rearranging as the room began to overflow, we were able to fit over 100 attendees into each session of the conference! Thank you to the community for coming out to learn, and getting so involved in each of the interactive sections. Education is the key to a greater understanding, and together we can help change perceptions and uncover truths about this incredible medical phenomenon.
