“Every year the Cannabis Science Conference works diligently to create relationships with celebrity influencers who are either in the cannabis space or looking to get involved,” said Joshua Crossney, President, CEO and Founder of CSC Events, LLC. “We are thrilled to be able to introduce Fran Drescher to the cannabis science community. It has been such a pleasure getting to know Fran over the past few years through Cancer Schmancer and their wonderful events, such as the annual Cancer Schmancer Health Summit in Los Angeles and Cabaret Cruise in NYC. When I saw that Fran and Cancer Schmancer were beginning to include medical cannabis education into their events, I knew that Fran would be a perfect fit to address our esteemed guests at the 2018 Cannabis Science Conference.”
