There are tons and tons of marijuana events out there these days. But not all of them are created equal. Many events are just glorified bong flea markets or claim to have ‘experts’ in speaking or in attendance, but when you look at the names you don’t recognize any of them. The people behind this website have been to more marijuana events than most, and below are some events that we vouch for. It includes industry events, entertainment events, and reform events:
