V International & Social Forum on Cannabis

On the 16th and 17th September 2016 in the Ficoba exhibition centre, Expogrow and the Renovatio Foundation organised the fifth International & Social Forum on Cannabis, sponsored by Canna and the Alchimia Foundation.
A key feature was the debate on global normalisation, involving national and international experts and personalities in the sector.
The Renovatio Foundation was created through extensive experience in the management of cannabis user’s collectives and supporting them throughout the various regulatory processes.
