Promoting the use of industrial hemp and legalizing medical
marijuana topped the agenda today at a conference downtown called the 'Cannabis
Tiffany Bowden is co-founder of Comfytree Cannabis Academy and
says the legal marijuana business is booming.
Bowden says she's confident medical marijuana will eventually
become legal in Ohio along with growing hemp and that will provide tremendous business
opportunities, but she says it takes a certain amount of know-how and savvy to
grow a successful business. "What we're doing here today is educating today's
entrepreneur for the future of the industry."
says the medical marijuana industry has a bright future and needs knowledgeable
people. "What we're passionate about is educating about those medicinal
benefits and the ways that entrepreneurs can get in at the ground level in a

hemp and dispensing medical marijuana is still illegal in Ohio, but the owner
of Hemptations, known simply as Beach, says there are efforts to change
that. "We are right now collecting signatures on a petition to get the Ohio
cannabis rights amendment on the ballot in 2014. What this amendment is....it's
a two-part amendment. It's a medical amendment, but it's also an industrial
