They say the medical marijuana industry is budding. People from all over the United States and the world came to a convention in Denver to experience everything from cannabis cooking classes and a fashion show with hemp wedding gowns, to classes on legal rights and responsibilities and a town hall meeting with lawmakers.
It's the largest cannabis convention the U.S. has ever seen, proving the medical marijuana industry is quickly planting a solid foundation.
But it's not without challenges and obstacles as there are still questions, gray areas, and evolving rules and regulations about how to streamline the industry and solidify professionalism.
Those involved say they're still fighting to be recognized as a legitimate business that medically helps people.
The goal, they say, is to continue to strive for professionalism, and a respected place in society.
