CLAB Vegas launches at Wayne Newton’s Casa De Shenandoah

As a marijuana marketing agency founded by a team of experts, our partners know better than most that your network is your net worth—or at least it can play a very heavy hand in the growth of your business as the cannabis industry moves forward. CLAB (Cannabis Law, Accounting, and Business), one of the country’s first and largest professional organizations for executives in ancillary industries, launched its newest Vegas chapter last week.

In an exclusive event that welcomed some of the best and brightest in the cannabis industry, including our cannabis marketing firm, CLAB Vegas launched at Wayne Newton’s Casa de Shenandoah. Hosted by the legend himself, attendees kicked of MJ Biz Con 2017 by mingling with the professionals seeking to shape the future of cannabis in the country and around the world.

Vegas, with its incredible tourist economy, is already considered the pulsing heart of the worldwide cannabis industry and it’s easy to see why. Continuous month-after-month growth in sales and demand have left the Nevada industry bursting at the seams, even as the State’s Supreme Court still determines distributions rights.

PRMCA helps raise awareness about Hurricane Maria relief

Although the energy at this year’s MJ Business Conference was filled with excitement about the future, one organization sought the opportunity to bring awareness to a very American humanitarian crisis. As an attempt to gain support for hurricane relief efforts, the Puerto Rico Medical Cannabis Association partnered with Rums of Puerto Rico, the Department of Economic Development, LVMMA, and CLAB Vegas during the week of MJ Biz Con 2017.

As a part of their efforts to highlight the need for ongoing need for assistance in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria, PRMCA’s “Stronger Together” campaign was featured at MJ Biz Con where the organization shared fundraising and educational information. Attendees also saw the lingering devastation through a Virtual Reality experience provided by PRMCA.

Their efforts at MJ Biz Con enabled the organization to provide patients with access to much-needed medicine. In Puerto Rico alone, there over 200,000 veterans; many of these veterans use medical cannabis to treat conditions like depression or PTSD.

MaJor Group helps host LVMMA Inaugural ‘Only in Vegas’ Awards

As the state’s oldest and largest cannabis industry organization for patients and businesses, the Las Vegas Medical Cannabis Association and its partners have been essential to building the foundation for the growth we’re witnessing the marijuana industry.

In honor of the incredible work of the Las Vegas cannabis community, LVMMA hosted its inaugural ‘Only in Vegas’ Awards. Aimed at recognizing the excellence, hard work, and commitment of cannabis businesses in Nevada, the awards ceremony welcomed 14 of the best dispensaries in Nevada.

According to MC and MaJor Group President, Geoffrey Radcliffe, the night was one to be remembered.
