About Our Speaker
Ben Cort is nationally recognized as a leading authority on Marijuana Policy, Addiction, Prevention, and Recovery. Ben has been active in the national marijuana discussion since 2012 when he was actively working as part of the “No to Amendment 64” campaign in Colorado. Since that time, Ben has assisted several states in their efforts to hold back Big Marijuana. Ben has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) in Washington DC. SAM, founded by former US Congressman Patrick Kennedy and three-time White House ONDCP advisor Kevin Sabet (Kevin is the only person appointed by both a Republican and Democrat president), is a nonpartisan, non-profit alliance of physicians, policymakers, prevention workers, treatment and recovery professionals, scientists, and other concerned citizens opposed to marijuana legalization who want health and scientific evidence to guide marijuana policies. Ben’s passion surrounding the intersection of recovery and public policy makes him a frequent guest in the media. Ben’s first book, Weed, Inc., was published in 2017 and he has a second book in the works. Ben presents a logical approach to evaluating the legalization of marijuana, for both medical purposes and for commercial purposes.
