Williams delivered the keynote remarks at the third staging of the CANEX Business Conference and Expo at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in Montego Bay, St. James.
After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000, Williams set out to find the safest, most effective form of medicinal cannabis for treating his disease and others, and to bring that product to the masses. In 2017 he launched a new, medical-grade line of cannabis oils and products.
