The Big Smoke plays host to Medical Marijuana Convention
Medical conventions in Toronto usually feature dull keynote speakers, journal articles with unintelligible titles and free Apotex bags, but this weekend’s event at the Metro Convention Centre is expected to be quite different: as many as 30,000 attendees will gather to debate the virtues of ganja. The Medical Marijuana and Hemp Show, Canada’s first-ever convention promoting the use of medical marijuana, runs until Sunday. Proud tokers can check out educational seminars with doctors, show off their hemp fashions, watch cannabis cooking shows, shop for gear or chill out at the world’s largest vapour lounge. Press materials didn’t mention much about munchies, but suffice it to say, we feel sorry for the caterers.
