The 2017 World Medical Marijuana Business Conference & Expo is a great chance for patients, physicians, researchers, and investors to assess our progress thus far and chart a course for the future,” stated Leach.
An advocate for numerous causes, Leach (D-17) has dedicated his career to supporting environmental, educational, animal rights, and human rights campaigns.
