First Las Vegas Cannabis Convention as Cannapalooza Launches in March 2010

December 17, 2009 by  

March Madness takes on a whole new meaning with the first ever Cannapalooza event, debuting March 19-21, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Cannapalooza, the international marketplace for all things cannabis, will showcase the latest products and technologies that have made cannabis one of the fastest growing industries in the world. Open to the public, Cannapalooza expects to draw 50,000 attendees from across the country and around the world.

Now, more than ever cannabis is moving into the mainstream, with marijuana playing a key role in popular culture. Showtime’s Weeds, pot infused musical lyrics and cover stories in national media outlets, along with heated political and medical debate have all pushed cannabis into the spotlight. The beauty and fashion industries have embraced the plant as well, with a rise in demand for natural hemp clothing and cosmetics.

The event will span 50,000 square feet of convention center space and is designed to provide an entertaining forum where everyone from industry insiders and medical marijuana users to those with a casual interest can gather to celebrate the culture. Attendees will be surrounded by every imaginable product including hand blown glassware, industrial hemp goods and more. For three days Cannapalooza will be the largest head shop on the planet.

Cannapalooza will also feature an educational symposium with expert speakers and celebrity guests addressing legalization, decriminalization and medicinal benefits, while debunking marijuana myths and sharing simple home garden techniques, green agricultural technologies and more.
