Cannabis and Hemp Expo kicks off in Daly City

DALY CITY, Calif. Organizers of the event, which began Saturday at 10 a.m., said they insisted on having an onsite medicating area before holding the expo.

They obtained permission for the area last year from the Cow Palace after years of negotiations.

The event also includes vendors selling bongs, pipes, vaporizers, hash brownies and other marijuana-related products.

Bob Katzman, chief operations officer for the expo, said it is intended to showcase the state's multibillion dollar pot industry and educate people about marijuana, from how to grow it to the laws surrounding its use.
