A growing number of events

When you start to look through the calendar of events, you soon get a sense of the growing level of interest in medical marijuana and how many growers and groups are starting the shape the cannabis industry in general.

One example of this would be Women Gro, which is committed to creating a series of programs and events as well as aiming to be the catalyst behind the movement to empower women to influence and succeed in the cannabis industry.

They scheduled an event in Scottsdale on the 2nd June, and there will no doubt be more events for the calendar in the coming months and years.

A couple of days later, on the 4th June and also in Scottsdale, A BBQ fundraiser promoted by the non-profit Grow for Vets is likely to prove popular.

Head to Phoenix

The Arizona Medical Cannabis Farmers Market is a regular event that takes place on the 3rd Saturday of every month, so there are plenty of opportunities to schedule a visit to Phoenix.

This farmers market has quickly become a regular feature in many people’s diaries, as it is considered to be a great place for like-minded MMJ patients to socialize. You will need a valid AZ state issued MMJ card for entry into the market and some other form of ID like your driver’s license, so be prepared.

Inside the event, you will find a large selection of different items and the entry fee is $5 if you make a non-perishable food donation at the same time, or $10 without.
