Three former professional athletes and a former Drug Enforcement Agency special agent are set to speak at the upcoming New Jersey CannaBusiness Association “Presents” event. The trade association has partnered with Athletes for CARE for the latest installment, set for Sept. 27 at Galloping Hill Golf Club in Kenilworth.

Scott Rudder, a former New Jersey legislator and president of the NJCBA, called the partnership with Athletes for CARE “a natural fit” as both organizations “share the same objective of a responsible approach towards medical treatment and, when appropriate, utilizing medical cannabis as a healthier alternative to opioids.”

“We are extremely excited about where this industry is heading,” Rudder said in a press release.  “The scientific breakthroughs in cannabis, coupled with the statistics coming from other states showing how a responsible cannabis industry benefits the community, is something lawmakers are taking seriously.”

Riley Cote, co-founder of Athletes for CARE and former enforcer for the National Hockey League’s Philadelphia Flyers will speak at the event along with former National Football League defense ends Marvin Washington and Leonard Marshall. Both Washington and Marshall are current athlete ambassadors for the organization.

Additionally, former DEA Supervisory Special Agent and current CEO of TITAN Group Jack Teitelman is set to address the attendees.

“I can tell you from firsthand experience, the opioid crisis that exists today was not there a decade ago,” Teitelman said in a statement. “This crisis was created by a lack of education and limited alternatives. By adding medical cannabis into the solution mix for pain management, we can significantly reduce the need for highly addictive opioids.”

Other speakers include: New Jersey Sen. Nick Scutari, a Democrat and lead sponsor of a cannabis tax-and-regulate bill in the legislature; Lindy Snider, chair of Athletes for Care and CEO of LindiSkin; George Schidlovsky, executive director of Compassionate Sciences Alternative Treatment Center; Aaron Epstein, Esq., general manager and counsel for Garden State Dispensary; Dr. Andrew Medvedovsky, founder and director at New Jersey Alternative Medicine; and Michael Figler, CEO for Intra Capital Holdings, LLC.
