A cancer survivor, Etheridge has publicly spoken about the medicinal value of cannabis in her recovery and is launching her own line of canna-products including a marijuana-infused wine.
“Melissa Etheridge is a perfect fit for CWCBExpo in LA. Her personal journey with medical marijuana and belief in the industry’s impact and business potential will resonate with our attendees,” said Dan Humiston, President of International Cannabis Association (ICA) and sponsors of CWCBExpo.
