Victoria B.C.: A Lifetime Achievement Award is being presented to Victoria cannabis pioneer Ted Smith at the Grow Up Conference, held at the Victoria Conference Center on Sunday October 1, 2023. With over 28 years working in the cannabis field, Ted has been an instrumental force in the cannabis scene long before it became a multibillion dollar industry. The Grow Up Conference features leading experts in cannabis genetics, horticulture and law, with dozens of vendors and high-quality speaker panels.
Ted is humbled to receive this award from a legal industry where he has long existed on the fringes. “It is a distinct honour to be recognized by the cannabis industry for my work advocating for patients and medical cannabis. For a long time I thought the legal industry didn’t care about my work, it makes me so thankful to see my advocacy work has left a lasting impression.”
The Grow Up Industry Awards Gala is a national annual event honouring cannabis professionals and companies and recognizing excellence and innovation in the cannabis industry.
