Oakland’s “Mardi Grass” Will Not Include On-Site Distribution

The International Cannabis and Hemp Expo coming to downtown Oakland Labor Day weekend will not permit on-site distribution of medical cannabis, organizers want to clarify.

V.I.P. package holders can pick up a box of goodies that includes cannabis samples before the event, and attendees may medicate on-site with a valid doctor’s recommendation, but just to be clear — there will be no on-site distribution of medical cannabis. Read the full preview on INTCHE 2011.

In other news, Time Magazine reports today that marijuana use does not cause long-term cognitive impairment, which is nice.
