marijuana toursThe city of Denver will again host an educational symposium for other governments charged with “implementing marijuana policies and regulations at the local and state levels,” the city’s Office of Marijuana Policy announced Wednesday.

After a successful debut in 2015, the Denver Marijuana Management Symposium will play the Colorado Convention Center on Oct. 27-28. An optional tour of various state- and city-regulated cannabis businesses will be given on Oct. 26, according to media materials.

“We are so proud and excited to again host this gathering of regulators, officials and visionaries,” Ashley Kilroy, executive director of the city’s Office of Marijuana Policy said in a release. “The symposium is a great opportunity for regulators to exchange ideas and best practices, and to discuss what managing legal marijuana looks like at the local and state levels.”

The symposium will include speakers, panels and breakouts on different topics — and another city-involved event, the Cannabis Sustainability Symposium, will be held Oct. 26 at the Colorado Convention Center. That event, hosted by the Organic Cannabis Association with support from Denver’s Department of Environmental Health, “will educate attendees on the latest tools, techniques and technologies for efficient and safe cannabis production,” according to its website.
