Later this year the Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition will be held at the Javits Center in New York City. One of the featured guests and keynote speakers will be NFL Super Bowl champion Leonard Marshall. Marshall will moderate a thought leadership panel covering CTE, concussions, and CBD as well as give his keynote address on related topics.
The Franklin, Louisiana native Leonard Marshall was the oldest of seven children and played college football at Louisiana State University. After graduating with a degree in business management, Marshall was drafted in the 1983 NFL Draft at number 37 overall by the New York Giants. Marshall started off slowly in the NFL but improved each year when ultimately in 1986 he and NFL legend Lawrence Taylor formed a dynamic duo on the right side of the Giants defense to help the Giants win the Super Bowl over the Denver Broncos. In 1990, Marshall would once again help the Giants win the Super Bowl as well as land one of the most devastating hits in NFL history by knocking Joe Montana out of his last game as a San Francisco 49er. After a few seasons with the New York Jets and Washington Redskins Marshall retired by signing a ceremonial contract with the Giants finishing his career fifth in Giants history in sacks and a total of 83.5 over his career and 12 in the postseason. Since his career ended, Marshall has annually ran the Leonard Marshall Football Academy Camp which trains football players ages eight to eighteen and currently lives in Mahwah, New Jersey.
Later this year NFL champion Leonard Marshall will be the keynote speaker at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Expo and will focus on CTE, concussions, and CBD. The event will have an enormous amount of companies and with Marshall in attendance to speak they will also have a face and a voice of a person who CBDs can benefit.
