<![CDATA[

Today is International Women’s Day—an opportunity to celebrate women have chosen to challenge the status quo, helping break down barriers for themselves and others. It’s also a moment where we look toward the future with hope for all the more we can achieve for women around the world by working together.

Each year on March 8, we honor this tradition by highlighting the women of Cannabis Conference, an impressive roster of women shattering glass ceilings, making space for themselves and other notable women in the burgeoning cannabis industry.  

This listing is just a start. As we continue to announce speakers for Cannabis Conference (Aug. 24-26, 2021, at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino), there will be plenty more women innovators, leaders, entrepreneurs and trailblazers to highlight—so keep an eye on CannabisConference.com for continued updates to our speaker roster.

Pétition ASBL Cannabis Belgique

Pourquoi une pétition ?

Nous sommes des personnes qui en avons assez de devoir aller dans la rue et avoir affaire à des réseaux criminels sans savoir où cela va nous conduire par après.

Nous sommes des personnes ayant des maladies, qui pour certaines sont rares, et utilisant pour médication le cannabis sous diverses formes (CBD,THC,THCv,CBDa,,,) sous l'accord de notre médecin.

Nous sommes des personnes responsables et honnêtes qui avons une vie épanouie et sans problèmes de vie ou sociaux.

Nous avons également une passion pour la plante de cannabis en elle-même et la cultiver est notre bonheur. De plus, nous pouvons nous soigner avec notre médication sans avoir peur des produits ou autres additifs contenus dans une plante que l'on peut trouver autre part.

Nous souhaitons pouvoir avoir notre médicament dans les normes de la santé publique, car un cannabis sain aide à réduire les frais de santé parfois conséquents pour la collectivité et le malade lui-même.

Nous sommes également des personnes responsables avec un rôle dans la société qui en avons assez d’être considérés comme des « hippies ou autres drogués », nous avons juste choisi notre médication et celle-ci a apporté les preuves de son efficacité dans le monde.

Nous connaissons déjà les produits dérivés comme le CBD et le THC que nous maîtrisons pour nous aider dans notre maladie « Je précise que nous ne sommes pas médecin et que nous nous basons sur 20 ans d’expérience médicale du cannabis des membres de notre ASBL et l'avis du médecin de famille ».

Nous désirons simplement ne plus nous cacher, et pouvoir aider les autres personnes le souhaitant.

Nous somme soucieux des ados et de la prévention à leur égard. Effectivement, nous sommes les acteurs parfaits pour répondre aux questions qu’ils se posent vu notre expérience cannabique et, de plus, nous pourrons leur expliquer les risques qu’ils encourent en achetant du cannabis dans la rue.

Le projet complet peut être demandé via mail " info@mcb.care " et sur le site internet : " http://mcb.care "
