Cannabis Business Executive Cancels Conference

The inaugural Cannabis Business Executive Convention, scheduled for January in Washington, D.C., has been cancelled, according to the event’s organizer, Rob Meagher of Cannabis Business Executive (CBE). In a post yesterday to his site, Meagher pointed to only 125 registrants (mainly speakers) and fewer than 20 sponsors prior to the decision to cancel, blaming the proximity to the recent MJBiz Conference earlier this month in Las Vegas.
