Denver to host major cannabis convention

DENVER – Representatives of the medical marijuana industry from across the country and two foreign countries are expected at the Colorado Cannabis Convention.

The event Friday and Saturday at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver is expected to include participants from Holland and Italy and more than 300 booths featuring businesses and products. Elected officials will participate in a town hall meeting.

Colorado is among the states grappling with how to regulate a quickly expanding medical marijuana industry. Legislators are considering bills dealing with businesses selling medical marijuana.

Colorado voters backed a measure in 2000 that approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes.

The convention’s sponsors are KUSH Magazine and, an online industry publication.
