Brazilian Medical Event (Cannabis) called MECA –

This event features at least 600 MDs, plus many company booths focused only on MDs and discussions around the scientific treatments using cannabis.

This event will involve federal Universities, Federal Regulation Agencies, full-professors (who never have prescribed cannabis), and it promises to shake the conservative medical minds in Brazil.
