Investors and Entrepreneurs Line up for Florida Marijuana!

Sold Out Conference Needs Larger Venue

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Interest in Florida medical marijuana is so high, that last month's Meet the Experts conference in West Palm Beach was sold out and dozens were turned away. The organizer has had to move their next conference to a larger South Florida venue.

Businessmen, investors, doctors, lawyers, would-be dispensary owners, future medical marijuana growers and caterers flocked to the last seminar in West Palm Beach. Conference promoter and Silver Tour founder, Robert Platshorn, is hosting Meet the Experts II, on May 17th, at the Emerald Hills Country Club, near Ft Lauderdale Airport. Robert said, "I felt bad at the last event, cramming in over a hundred and twenty people. But many who showed up ticketless, were stuffing hundred dollar bills in my pockets and pleading just to be able to stand in the back for ten hours."

No surprise! Platshorn's lineup of speakers is a list of superstars of the marijuana industry. Discovery Channel's Mike Boutin, featured on "Weed Country," has grown medical marijuana for over thirty years. Keynote speaker Ean Seeb is Chairman of the National Cannabis Industry Association. Along with his partner Kayvan Khalatbari they founded Denver Relief and Consulting, featured on 60 Minutes and considered the model dispensary for America. The partners are helping entrepreneurs in several states obtain licenses and establish successful businesses practices.

NORML Chairman, Mitch Earleywine covers federal laws and law enforcement. The proposed state regulations are the subject of well-known Florida attorney/activist Michael Minardi. Stockbroker and federal marijuana patient Irv Rosenfeld will be on hand with his can of marijuana cigarettes supplied free, by Uncle Sam. And two prominent Florida doctors will advise physicians on what conditions can and cannot qualify for treatment with cannabis.

The eleven-hour learning marathon has already proven a very valuable networking experience for attendees of the first conference. Several found investors and many formed alliances for the expected impending Florida "green rush." To ensure valuable networking time, Platshorn is keeping everyone in-house with a free Continental Breakfast, Country Club lunch, all day beverage bar, snack buffet and even a Wine and Cheese Reception at the end of a long day. All included in the price of the ticket.

According to Robert, "The four hundred dollar ticket price is a bargain. It wouldn't come close to covering the cost of an hour with most of these experts. One man told me he had already spent almost forty thousand dollars on consultants and lawyers without getting half the practical information he gleaned at the conference."
