Add comment on:Making History Through Medication at the International Cannabis and Hemp Expo
The International Cannabis and Hemp Exposition, held at the Cow Palace in Daly City, just outside San Francisco, on the pre-420 weekend of April 17th and 18th, was historic. The expo, which had the first permitted area for the use of medical marijuana, was the largest event of its’ kind to hit Northern California.
Established activist organizations dished out information to prospective members, and hundreds of vendors pitched their freshest accessories inside two large convention halls to thousands of medical marijuana patients and connoisseurs. At the same time, prominent members of the cannabis community discussed a wide-range of topics, including marijuana cultivation, medication and prohibition. However the main buzz, on and off stage, was the controversial initiative to "legalize, control, and tax cannabis in California," which is to be decided by voters in the state during the November 2010 elections.
