Cannabis, also known as marijuana, is legal in Oregon for both medical and recreational use. At last, this maligned plant is becoming decriminalized in many states and some have even moved in the same direction as Oregon.
As a result, there is a booming business for cannabis and that means that the businesses need to communicate with each other and network. This is a very good time for the cannabis industry. The Cannabis Convention Portland honors is exactly the place for this.
Many businesses that deal with cannabis products meet here to discover new connections and do business. Also, there is recreational business going on. All of it converges in one location for good reasons.
Cannabis as Medicine
Cannabis is now widely used for a variety of medical problems. The reality is that it has always worked for these conditions but only recently has it gained acceptance by the medical community. California was the first state to legalize cannabis for medical use, in fact.
From there, the legalization spread to Oregon and Washington and Colorado as well. Now many states accept the use of cannabis as medicine while fewer allow it for recreational use. More states have decriminalized the use of cannabis in light of this.
It works for nausea, pain, inflammation, and various other symptoms of many diseases so anyone with the conditions for which it is indicated can obtain it if they are in the right state. This is good news for everyone.
Cannabis for Recreational Use
It is a well-known fact that cannabis is used recreationally and there has been much debate on this issue over the years. There still is a strong debate but a number of states have gone ahead with the legislation to allow recreational use.
There are dispensaries for both medical and recreational cannabis all over the country, in the states that have legalized. This means that one can now obtain real, unadulterated cannabis for personal consumption.
Considering that there are risks involved with buying cannabis on the streets, the dispensaries are much better as the products they sell are definitely the real thing and safe to use. The whole plant is used in various forms from smoked to oral use.
A Free Country
At last, the states that allow the use of cannabis across the board have followed the idea of a free country in which individuals make the decision if they are going to use this or not. It makes sense considering that alcohol and tobacco, both harmful, have been widely legal for many decades.
With conventions like the one in Oregon and elsewhere, the mystery and the lies about cannabis are being peeled away so people can decide for themselves how or if they want to use cannabis rather than other substances. As it turns out, cannabis is not dangerous compared to alcohol and tobacco so there is no harm done.
If you want to go to the conventions, you can. Anyone can come even though it is for businesses mainly. You make the choice and support the new system.
