Cannabis News Network to present Cannabis University at Cannabis Liberation Day Amsterdam

AMSTERDAM – For the ninth consecutive year the VOC (Union for the Abolition of Cannabis Prohibition) presents Cannabis Liberation Day, Holland’s biggest cannabis event, in Amsterdam’s beautiful Flevopark. This year’s program includes speakers from Spain, Canada, the USA and France. The date is Sunday June 11.

We’ll be going live on Facebook!

Since 2009 Cannabis Liberation Day has steadily grown to become the biggest and best known Dutch cannabis and hemp event, with visitors and media attention far beyond our borders. The formula: a free, family friendly protestival at a beautiful, green venue, with lots of information and entertainment and a careful balance between activism and commerce.

A new feature is the Cannabis University, a large tent with a full program of master classes, panel discussions and demonstrations about cannabis, featuring renowned speakers and experts, in collaboration with Cannabis News Network.

The Cannabis University will be presented by Cannabis News Network’s Steven Kompier; an experienced director, reporter and producer. In 2016 he presented the cannabis oil debate at Cannabis Liberation Day and recently he also presented the Cannabis Regulation Seminar in March 2017.

Entrance to Cannabis Liberation Day is free and all ages and nationalities are welcome. The event starts at 14:00 and ends at 22:00. Venue: Flevopark, Amsterdam, entrance Valentijnkade.
