Hemp Advocacy in the MJ Space: NoCo Hemp Expo Team Goes to MJBizCon

By Steven Hoffman

The team at We Are for Better Alternatives, publisher of Let’s Talk Hemp and producer of NoCo Hemp Expo, recently attended MJBizCon, the cannabis industry’s largest trade show and conference, held each year in Las Vegas.

Participating in a hemp meetup, and interacting with hemp-based exhibitors and advocates among a crowd primarily comprised of marijuana producers, manufacturers, equipment suppliers and more, the WAFBA team was there to promote the many uses of industrial hemp, in addition to the medicinal cannabinoids derived from the hemp plant.

According to WAFBA President Morris Beegle, it was important to be there to build bridges between the marijuana and hemp communities, and to explore opportunities where innovation and collaboration can meet.
