Chelsea Handler Joins World Cannabis Congress as a Keynote Speaker

Saint John, NB -- Chelsea Handler will join cannabis industry leaders in business, research, politics and culture from around the world for the 2018 World Cannabis Congress in Saint John, New Brunswick next month.

Handler is an American comedian, actress, writer, television host and producer. She hosted the late-night talk show Chelsea Lately on the E! network, released a Netflix documentary series, Chelsea Does, and hosted the talk show, Chelsea, on Netflix. In 2018, Handler announced plans to launch a cannabis brand.

“This event will be unlike any other in the cannabis industry,” says Derek Riedle, publisher of Civilized and Co-Chair of the World Cannabis Congress. “Having entrepreneurial and innovative leaders, policy-makers, consumers, supporters and celebrities together in one place is a perfect reflection of where we are right now, as an industry.”       

Handler joins Canada’s Hon. Anne McLellan, Chair of the Canadian Task Force on Cannabis Legalization, and 350 of the brightest minds and biggest influencers in the industry for two days of expert talks, engaging panel discussions, and unparalleled networking opportunities.
