The Future of the Cannabis Industry To Be Discussed in Eindhoven

The cannabis symposium will last all day and will be presented by Bas van Werven, known from BNR radio (‘De Ochtendspits’). In addition to the four-panel debates, the program includes the presentation of the Koos Zwart Award and the presentation of a book written for the PCN. ‘A Quarter Century of Fighting for the Coffeeshop’ describes the history of the PCN.

On Friday, November 4th, experts and insiders from the Netherlands, Germany, Canada, and the U.S. will gather in Eindhoven to discuss the future of the cannabis industry. It promises to be the Dutch cannabis event of the year.

Coffeeshop association PCN is organizing this grand symposium to mark its 25th anniversary because the cannabis industry is on the eve of major changes. The venue is iconic, flying saucer-shaped Evoluon, still the most beautiful building in the City of Light.

Speakers from Canada, Germany, and the United States will attend the symposium

That commitment has remained the same at the PCN anniversary symposium: experts and insiders, people who are close to the fire. Like Georg Wurth, founder of Deutsche Hanfverband (DHV), Europe’s largest cannabis legalization organization. He knows like a few others the developments surrounding the upcoming legalization in our eastern neighbors.

The other two panelists at the international panel are also of high caliber. Bob Hoban, one of America’s first and best-known cannabis lawyers, has been involved in cannabis legislation in over 30 countries. I am also very much looking forward to seeing Hilary Black, who founded the BC Compassion Club Society, Canada’s first medical cannabis store, in 1997.

In preparation, she told Steven Kompier that she still worked for Wernard Bruining at grow shop Positronics when she lived in Amsterdam for a while a long time ago. Until recently, Black was employed by the Canadian mega-cannabis company Canopy Growth, but she was fired in a manner not worthy of a beauty prize.

Dutch cannabis policy and the cannabis trial

In addition to the international panel debate, there are three more debates, on the bottlenecks of the current policy, the cannabis trial, and how things can be improved. The designated cannabis trial growers are avoiding publicity, but the cannabis trial panel debate, involves two important people: John Meijers of Holigram and Bart Vollenberg of Aardachtig. Third-panel member is Breda Mayor Paul Depla, who has been fighting for years for regulation

There will also be civil servants and other government officials, and hopefully, they will pay close attention during the first-panel debate. There is a lot wrong with our cannabis policy and the speakers on this panel can explain it clearly: Joachim Helms of Greenhouse coffeeshops, drug expert August de Loor, professor Jan Brouwer from Groningen, and Deborah Bruin, who graduated cum laude on coffeeshop policy and worked in her mother’s shop in Rotterdam.

Nicole Maalsté is probably the best-known panelist at the last debate, on how to improve policy and the industry. But I am also very curious about Tim Vis, who worked for years at Spong Lawyers and co-wrote the book “The hypocrisy of the backdoor. Two very experienced coffee shop entrepreneurs, Willem Vugs and PCN board member Sander Hewitt, provide the voice of the practice in this fourth-panel debate.

Koos Zwart Award, anniversary book on coffee shops and tickets

The symposium will last all day and will be presented by Bas van Werven, known from BNR radio (‘De Ochtendspits’). In addition to the four-panel debates, the program includes the presentation of the Koos Zwart Award and the presentation of a book written for the PCN. ‘A Quarter Century of Fighting for the Coffeeshop’ describes the history of the PCN and the incredible way in which our cannabis policy has developed.

The ticket price includes a copy of this lavishly illustrated book, a sumptuous lunch and celebratory drinks. If you enter the promotion code pcnsymposium when ordering tickets you will receive a fifty percent discount.
