For the first time in the United States, a three day for the celebration and education of medicinal marijuana took place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on 2/19-2/21.
Hundreds of vendors from all over the country hawked everything from growing techniques to water pipes and vaporizors for the medicinal use (yep!). Guest speakers included representatives from NORML and other industry icons.
However HempCon was nearly in trouble on the first day as Bong TV Live lit up Friday evening much to the dismay of the promoters. They were removed from the program for the remainder of the weekend.
