While a handful of companies officially launched at the annual Lift & Co. conference, two highly personal endeavors also sprang from the Vancouver expo.
Amidst a sea of sport coats, branded after parties, and bud-less booths, two cannabis industry couples got engaged over the weekend—making a new name for the conference as a platform for romance.
Andy Le, founder of Cannabis Code, a Burnaby marketing and web design agency, proposed on Saturday (January 12) during the panel series. Le’s partner of 10 years, Sabrina, said “yes!” after he got down on one knee in front of an audience at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

The cannabis advocate—whose focus is on eradicating stigma around responsible consumption and parenting—shared the sweet moment online, including a peek at her gorgeous ring on Instagram.

It is official Dieter proposed last night ! It surprised me to the point of being speechless. I have waited and had my line ready for years and when he asked me I forgot it all. He brought all of our parents together and our daughter to our work trip in Vancouver @liftandco , and then after I got back from the @the_herblife mixer he sprung it on me, and how could I refuse? Love you @dmacpher can’t wait to spend my life with you, Emma and our family. #proposal #cannabiscommunity
Congratulations to both of the couples in highlighting yet another way weed brings people together.
