Salt Lake City, UT – September 19, 2018. Utah Cann is proud of the inclusion of outgoing Utah State Senator Jim Debakis and former State Senator Steve Urquhart on its All-Star Political Panel during the state’s first-ever medical cannabis conference to be held October 19-20 at the Mountain America Expo Center in Sandy, a south suburb of Salt Lake City.
Senator Debakis, who is not seeking re-election to the State Senate, has long been a proponent of medical cannabis and a strong advocate of the personal rights of the sick and afflicted to find relief from their pain and suffering.
Mr. Urquhart, who retired from the State Senate in 2016, stands arm-in-arm with supporters of Proposition 2, the official name of the Utah Medical Cannabis Act on the November ballot, through his timely and assertive columns at Utah Bee, where he serves as publisher and frequent columnist.
“We’ve assembled a very strong and accessible panel of current and former politicians from across the state,” said John Saltas, founder and publisher at the City Weekly, host and sponsor of the Utah CANN medical cannabis conference. “Conference attendees will walk away from the All-Star Political Panel discussion more informed and enlightened about cannabis legislation than ever before.”
The panel discussion, which also includes Salt Lake County District Attorney, Mr. Sim Gill, will begin at 10:30am on Saturday, October 20, the second day of the education-oriented conference.
