FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 20, 2017) - NFL players, patients, doctors, taxpayers, entrepreneurs, cultivators, media, job seekers, policy makers and other curious citizens gather in Fort Worth at the Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo to proclaim cannabis is medicine. The event, scheduled for April 21-23, will be held at the Fort Worth Conference Center.

"Texas Citizens have the unique opportunity to learn more about what is happening in State and Nationally at the 2nd Annual Southwest Cannabis Conference & Expo in Ft. Worth this weekend," commented Demitri Downing -- Former Prosecutor and designer of the SWCCEXPO emerging market expo.

This is potentially an economic opportunity that hasn't been seen since the great oil boom. For three days over the weekend of April 21-23rd in the Fort Worth area, American cannabis industry and national experts will discuss how to capitalize on this trend.

Texas is widely considered to be one of the most lucrative emerging cannabis markets. The Lone Star State has a burgeoning cannabis industry that's on the cusp of becoming one of the biggest U.S. markets.

"Texas Medical Cannabis is here to stay; everyone should be curious about what this emerging industry will look like and what the medicine does! With the Trump administration acknowledging the distinction between adult use and medicine, and even Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones making comments supportive of cannabis use, it's just a matter of how fast the gushing from this industry begins," Downing emphasizes.

This event features a lineup of celebrities, former pro football players, medical professionals and more, all working cohesively to bring about increased cannabis awareness. The Conference features three jam-packed days of cannabis information, education and networking -- including a major expo with 125 exhibitors.

At a special event prior to the conference will be held on Friday April 21, join former NFL players Marvin Washington, Boo Williams, Darren Long and many more athletes and medical professionals on the discussion of cannabis and NFL. Organizers are hoping Jerry Jones comes in support (
