​The one-and-only Cannabis Business Awards​® (CBAs), the cannabis industry’s premier business awards show since 2012, is returning this June 2 from 7-11 p.m. EDT. The venue has been changed to Event Space at 1111 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, located on the 7th floor of the iconic Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron garage, to accommodate more sponsors and attendees. Presented by Clover Leaf and Chloe Villano, the event will bring the biggest pioneers, movers, and shakers in the cannabis industry and drug policy movement together to celebrate how far the industry has come, while also helping energize everyone to tackle what’s next. Villano is working alongside Aloré Event Firm for a top-notch Miami experience.

This year is an extra special event as the cannabis industry has been able to emerge from COVID lockdowns deemed essential, generating more revenue than ever before, while continuing political advancement across the nation and even in the halls of Congress. Understanding how influencers in business, culture, and entertainment all come together to help advance the cause, the Cannabis Business Awards brings it all together for an event that should not be missed.

Founded by long-time cannabis activist and industry leader, Clover Leaf Founder Chloe Villano, the CBAs have honored leaders of the industry from coast to coast, and even around the world. “Our return event in Miami is extremely exciting as so many of us have been isolated for too long,” Villano stated. “The cannabis industry has been growing by leaps and bounds and I’m so happy to award three sports awards for the first time, along with awards for the psychedelics sector. The cannabis community has helped lead the way, but there is so much more to be done to end the failed Drug War and we’re happy to help bring everyone together in Miami. Until we reach full legalization, these businesses will continue to be over-regulated, and the benefits of cannabis and psychedelics will be underutilized. I’m proud to help elevate these amazing companies and individuals that are changing the world for the better.”

Special guests this year include former NBA player Al Harrington, Chicago Bears Super Bowl quarterback Jim McMahon, Super Bowl Champion Marvin Washington, Miss Universe Canada Alyssa Boston, Rapper Tick Trick, and Twin from the Infamous Mobb Deep. With both the NBA and NFL recently reforming their cannabis drug testing policies, it’s time to honor those that have helped pave the way and continue to create more freedom and prosperity for all.
