Organa Kannalytics, an advocacy organization for medical marijuana, is hosting a convention in Atlanta next month. The 2022 Southeastern Hemp and Medical Cannabis Convention will be held May 12-14 live at Cobb Galleria and may be attended virtually via livestream. A press release says the expo will offer networking and break-out sessions covering medical use and practices, business opportunities, scientific advancements and legislation.

Guest speakers will include record producer Dallas Austin and former NFL wide receiver Tavarres King. CEO Bridgett Graham said attending the event “will benefit entrepreneurs, growers, scientific professionals, suppliers and distributors as well as retail business owners in the hemp and medical cannabis industry, in addition to the consumers of their products and those searching for answers to their health and wellness issues.” One caveat: no THC products will be permitted on the premises.
