Let's Talk with Alexis Bortell

Alexis Bortell Launches Her Book, “Let’s Talk About Medical Cannabis,” at Southwest Cannabis Conference + Expo

FORT WORTH, TEXAS, April 19, 2017 (Newswire) –​Alexis Bortell, our favorite child advocate for medical cannabis refugees, will launch her first book, “Let’s Talk About Medical Cannabis,” at the 2nd Annual Southwest Cannabis Conference + Expo in Fort Worth on Saturday the 22nd.  Alexis chose this educational medical cannabis conference and her home state of Texas to launch her book saying, “I love my adopted state of Colorado but I am still a Texas girl.”

Alexis will be taking the main stage at twelve noon Saturday where she will share the story of how her life drastically changed through a four-year search for an effective treatment for her intractable epilepsy. Now over two years seizure free on medical cannabis, she has made it her mission to advocate for the medicine that saves her life.

After her time on stage, Alexis will be signing books and meeting with conference attendees at her booth on the SWCC Expo show floor.

When asked about the main takeaway for her readers Alexis had this to say, “In my book, I share our family’s experiences advocating for the medicine that saves my life so that those experiences can help others. From learning how to grow my own medicine, to dealing with legislators, legalizing whole plant medical cannabis is not an easy task. If you support smart cannabis legislation but your legislator doesn’t get them a copy of “Let’s Talk About Medical Cannabis,” and, if they still don’t support it, run against them or find someone who will.”

She will continue her book tour with stops planned in both Miami/Ft. Lauderdale and Phoenix for book signings at Southwest Cannabis Conference + Expos happening later in 2017.

“Let’s Talk About Medical Cannabis” can be purchased at alexisbortell.com and on Kindle, and is available everywhere 4/20/17.
