“We are thrilled to be presenting this event alongside two legendary companies,” said Derek Riedle, Founder and Publisher of Civilized. “And there will be a few more legends to talk about when we announce the cast list.”

The Second City are comedic masterminds, and Civilized is one of the most reputable brands in the cannabis space – of course I jumped at the opportunity to host this event.” said Gilbert Smith, Executive Producer at the Montalbán Theatre. “And I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
