According to organizers, the expo is the leading event for the legalized and medical marijuana industries. "I was extremely honored to be asked to speak at the CWCBExpo because as a Cancer survivor, who discovered the unparalleled medical benefits of cannabis during my recovery, I feel very passionate about helping to remove the negative stigma and educating people about its real medicinal value," said Etheridge in a statement.

Speaking with Bloomberg News last year, Etheridge explained her reasons for getting into the pot business saying, "I believe this is a huge business, a huge market-you're going to see my name with a lot of these things." Read more here.
