Meet the Media: PR & Cannabis Journalism, Covering America’s New Normal

Now that we’re in Year Two of California’s recreational marijuana industry, cannabis-related brands and businesses continue to turn to public relations professionals for creative and innovative strategies to stand out within one of the world’s fastest growing industries. It, therefore, should come as no surprise, that newsrooms around the world are covering every aspect of the cannabis industry from cannabis culture and lifestyle to policies and cannabis retail trends and everything in between. Join us and hear from leading journalists and thought leaders, who will discuss best practices as well as challenges of covering the cannabis beat.
