Cannabis is, more and more, being recognized as a viable exit drug from opioid addiction, and that will be one of its uses which will be highlighted at a major event this weekend in Arizona.

If you’re curious about the business and health benefits of cannabis, you have a chance to join the conversation and meet, network and learn from marijuana professionals and entrepreneurs from across the nation at the 2nd Annual Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo, Friday, October 14 through Sunday, October 16, at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Press panels addressing cannabis pain control solutions for athletes will be headlined by 11-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl star Marvin Washington.

Washington, who was voted by Sports Illustrated as the 36th best NY Jet of all time, said that cannabinoids as neuroprotectants “make the game safer” and can protect professional, recreational and child athletes — all without any psychotropic effects or impact on performance. He will also address the debilitating effects of concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

SPORTS PRESS PANELS: Saturday, October 15
Cannabis solutions for opioid dependence and addiction1:00 -1:45 p.m.
Pro Sports and Cannabis/CTE: 2:00 – 2:45 p.m.

The opioid addiction panel will discuss America’s #1 public health epidemic and the alternative cannabis treatments. Renowned pain management specialist Dr. David Tonkin, and lifelong advocate for human rights Larry Banegas will speak alongside Washington.

Tonkin is one of the nation’s premier pain management specialists with board certifications in anesthesiology and pain management. He’ll address questions on how to alleviate prescription opioid addiction with cannabis. Doing so through legal channels reduces the demand for fentanyl and street drugs such as heroin, that can have deadly effects.

Larry Banegas believes addiction — a brain disease — should be a qualifying condition for medical marijuana use. As founder of the Native American news resource Kumeyaay.com and Kuseyaay Healing Center at his reservation, Barona, Banegas will share his experience of empowering individuals with cannabis knowledge for spiritual and therapeutic uses. According to Banegas, people have overcome addictions to alcohol and prescription drugs with cannabis at his healing center.

The event comes at a pivotal time for Arizona voters, as next month they’ll decided upon Proposition 205, a “tax and regulate like alcohol” type of measure sponsored by the Marijuana Policy Project.
