“Marijuana: What Does it Mean
For Your Local Government”

FCCMA 2016 Fall Symposium

Thursday, October 20, 2016 – 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM (Eastern Time)
Lake Eva Event Center, 799 Johns Avenue, Haines City


Amendment 2, a proposed Constitutional amendment relating to medical cannabis, is on the November ballot and recent polls show that it has a great chance of passing.  If (or when) it passes, your community will feel the impact immediately.  This year’s Fall Symposium will help you better understand what IS in the amendment and what ISN’T, what that means for your city or county, and the steps that you can be taking now to prepare.

Attendees will hear from experts on how the expansion of medical cannabis could affect land use and zoning, public safety, and other services provided at the local level.  You’ll learn how other states have dealt with medical cannabis and ways to avoid some of the problems that they’ve had.  Finally, you’ll learn about the potential economic impact that medical cannabis could have on your community.  This is one Symposium that you won’t want to miss!
