What You Need To Know About The International Cannabis Business Awards In Las Vegas

Every year, the movers and shakers in the cannabis industry gather in Las Vegas for a week of events and networking. This year, one of the longest-standing award shows in the space, The Cannabis Business Awards, is landing in Sin City for the first time since its inception, with an impressive lineup and an outstanding list of nominees.

Among big names expected to step on stage on December 10 at Hakkasan, one of America's top nightclubs according to Rolling Stone Magazine, Playboy Magazine, and DJ Mag, will be former Mexican President Vicente Fox, Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams, and NBA legend Al Harrington.

Chloe Villano, founder of Clover Leaf University and The Cannabis Business Awards, told Benzinga, “This is a green revolution, full of dedicated pioneers, trailblazers, and inventors who have pushed this industry forward. The CBA Globes honor the great work of the people in the industry and the efforts to pioneer the end of the drug war. This is the place where you find a crowd of the most elite.”

The list of nominees was announced a few weeks ago, but voting has been extended through Sunday, December 8. You can vote for your favorite people, companies, and organizations in cannabis following this link.
