The relationship between cannabis and the media is multifaceted.  Since the founding of HIGH TIMES Magazine in 1974, the media have been used to promote the cultures of cannabis users and to advance legal reforms.  The advent of the Internet may well have been the key to the reforms we have seen since the 1990’s, as reform supporters could find each other, network, promote their political actions, and do it all very inexpensively.

The Northeastern Institute of Cannabis is proud to host a panel presentation and discussion of cannabis in the media, and how reforms have led to the development of a cottage industry in magazines and websites that promote cannabis culture and legal reform.  Weekly, monthly, and online publications will be featured on the panel.  Come network with publishers, advertisers, editors, and writers, covering the emerging cannabis landscape. Ladybud Magazine Publisher Diane R. Fornbacher will be featured on the panel along with other people involved with cannabis media:
