In 2012 Massachusetts voters said YES to legalizing medical marijuana in their state, and only a few months ago voters came through once more for recreational marijuana. With interest growing even more after the recreational law passed, it's no surprise that the New England Cannabis Convention will be returning to Boston once more this weekend, April 22-23. While no consuming of the drug will be permitted on the premises, there will be a plethora of marijuana based presentations around for all visitors to learn from. Open from 10-6 both days, visitors will have a chance to see dozens of public speakers, over 175 marijuana exhibits and even demonstrations performed live including cannabis-infused home cooked meals.
What the future holds for medical marijuana is also on the convention agenda. Massachusetts voters legalized marijuana for medical use in 2012.
In-door homegrowing of marijuana is another topic. A 45-minute demonstration promises to answer beginner questions about how much space is needed, what kind of equipment and fertilizer works best and how to stay in compliance with Massachusetts laws.
Set to take place at the Hynes Convention Center on Saturday, April 22, and Sunday, April 23. Smoking, dabbing or vaping is not allowed anywhere inside the convention center, organizers say.
