Roger Stone Speaks About Boycott Against His Pot Expo Appearance

By LA Weekly, Aug. 24, 2017

Multiple exhibitors and speakers have pulled out of the Cannabis World Congress & Business Exposition (CWCBE), scheduled for Sept. 13-15 in Los Angeles, as a result of Stone's presence. The longtime political consultant, who worked on the political campaigns of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump, was targeted mostly as a result of his support of the 45th president.

Seventeen speakers and seven sponsorship partners, including the Drug Policy Alliance, have pulled out of the event, boycott organizers say. The Minority Cannabis Business Association (MCBA) initiated the boycott last week after learning of Stone's appearance. A petition with more than 500 endorsements also is urging the expo to drop Stone. "Inviting Mr. Stone to speak to the crowd, especially as we see the rise of overt racism and anti-Semitism, is an affront to the very movement you purport to promote," according to the petition.
