Banned Cannabis Makes Appearance at Pot Business Convention in Boston

BOSTON (AP) — A cannabis convention in Boston wasn’t actually supposed to have marijuana present.

But if you look closely beyond the cacti and other plants brought in by exhibitors to simulate the plant, it’s been there all along.

More than 250 exhibitors and 100 experts attended the convention on Saturday and Sunday to discuss the country’s burgeoning marijuana industry at the New England Cannabis Convention.

An adult can possess up to one ounce of pot in Massachusetts in public, and up to 10 ounces at home with no penalty.

Sales to adults 21 and older should begin in July following the legalization of recreational marijuana in Nov. 2016.
