Touring Cannabis Conference for Healthcare Professionals Kicks Off in Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV (October 5th – 7th, 2017) Cannabis Nurses Network (CNN) is producing, the first ever 5.33 CEU Nursing accredited program, as the first installment in their national educational campaign taking place at UNLV- Las Vegas, Nevada (Greenspun Hall and Foundations Bldg) 4505 S. Maryland Pkwy., Las Vegas, NV 89154.

Attendees will experience a 2-day series on the UNLV campus in partnership with UNLV Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP), Las Vegas NORML, and their generous sponsors.

Editors note: Illegally Healed is a proud media sponsor of #CCN2017 and will broadcast exclusive interviews to Facebook Live during the event.

This conference is open to all and will reach more than two hundred national and local nurses, students, healthcare professionals, and individuals from around the globe and in every legalized cannabis market, in the process. Lectures and panel discussions will integrate accredited curriculum of cannabis education, on the Endocannabinoid System (eCS) and the science behind the plant, including hands-on workshops and Interactive Sportsbook panels.

The Interactive Sportsbook Panel highlights the celebrity sports guests, discussing their personal experiences with cannabis, and what they are doing to create positive change in the health of future athletes. They will also weigh in on cannabis therapy vs. opioids, that are routinely “recommended” by their team physicians.

Special guest speakers include Prior NFL Players, Marvin Washington (NY Jets/Broncos/49ers), Eddie “Boo” Williams (Saints), Frank Hawkins (Raiders), and Steve Cantwell (WEC/UFC). This session will include autographs and photos/selfies with these amazing trailblazers.

The education continues at the Cannabis Nurses Magazine 2-Year Anniversary Party & Leaders of Nursing Awards Ceremony, which will be held at the beautiful, Las Vegas City Hall Lobby, Friday, Oct.6th, 2017 7PM-10PM at 495 S. Main St., Las Vegas, NV 89101. National Cannabis Nurses, Sports Professionals, and Patients will be awarded for their efforts and will receive the ‘Leaders of Nursing Award’ from Cannabis Nurses Magazine for their dedication and commitment in providing education and awareness. Registration required.

This is an Educational Only, Non-Consumption Event. While the demographics of those seeking “legalized cannabis in Las Vegas,” will be confused by the nature of this statement, the goal of CNNC2017 is to elevate the conversation at the local level, while assuring complete transparency. The CNN executive team met with numerous city, state and county officials, including LVMPD, the heads of the Marijuana Enforcement Divisions of each and every department at all levels, in order to be in complete compliance with NRS453 and local municipalities who support their efforts.

Established in 2015, the Cannabis Nurses NetworkTM is a professional nursing organization of nurses from around the globe. The organization advocates that as more countries and states legalize adult use cannabis and medical cannabis, the need for cannabis education is more important for health care providers and individuals than ever before. By educating nurses on the science behind the plant and providing a global nursing network, nurses will be supported and able to implement their knowledge within their own communities and states. This will ultimately assist our nation’s healthcare system as a whole while providing safe access, safe products, and safe consumption practices.

Cost for the conference is $299. Full and partial scholarships are available. For more information/registration visit:
