Cancellation announcement

To the medical cannabis community,

On behalf of the organizing committee and the conference secretariat, we regretfully announce, after much pained reflection, that we have cancelled the International Conference on Medical Cannabis and Cannabinoids that was set to take place from 22-24 November 2017 in Prague, because of unforeseen technical and financial circumstances. We would like to apologize for the cancellation, especially to those of you who have already made travel and accommodation plans.

After the success of the Medical Cannabis Conference in 2015, we wished to build on the momentum and were hoping the issues our conference wanted to address would pave the way for a successful series of events dealing with the issues that will shape the future of cannabinoids in medicine in the upcoming years. We are now talking about the harmonization of differences in legal systems, efforts made by patients’ associations, facilitating the exchange of experience among doctors and medical professionals, and, last but not least, changing the ways in which our society perceives and tackles medical cannabis. The path is long-established and will inevitably lead towards the primary goal – making medical cannabis available to people in need.

In the coming weeks, we will evaluate and discuss the future steps of this conference.  Clearly, this is a growing area, with many different approaches to educating, advocating, and disseminating information. Our team and partners remain dedicated to bringing together the world leaders in the field. We will continually pursue our general objective – to make medical cannabis a standard part of the medical system – and – as Raphael Mechoulam once said – to make cannabinoids as significant as antibiotics. We invite you to keep following us on social networks. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting and exchanging informationi and experience with you in the future. Our efforts will continue, and we will make public announcements about all our upcoming activities.

If you have registered, you will receive a refund notification within the following days. For any further assistance please contact reg_imcc17@kenes.com.
